Semi Drag Radial - 19 inch
I am currently running 19x10 in the rear wrapped with Nitto NT555. I will be putting down 600 plus down in the near future. I want to know what are the best drag radials for 19s? I know there are not many, I have my eyes kinda set on the NT05.2007 335i MT E92

Few choices in that size. If you intend to run on the street the Nitto's are your best bet due to the tread life.
The only other choice is Mickey Thompson.

Just to piggy back on this, nt05r -- what's the thread life on these and wet handling? I do ~5-6k a year and would like a DR that can corner safely and can drive in rain without my $#@! puckering.

Pretty sure tread wear for NT05 is 120. Doubt anyone wanting to run a DR cares about tread wear.2011 335is DCT, looking for new car friends in Italy.

If you are driving them on the street more than to and from street races or to the track get the Nittos, if they are simply swap on for races then back to a good High performance street tire go with the M/T's. The nittos are good tires but they wont hook quite as well as the M/T's but they do handle a lot better in the rain and will last longer.Vargas Turbocharger Technologies

you have to heat them up good to get good traction at the strip. Good burnouts! lol might want to look into a line-lock also if you're going to be serious about drag racing.2011 335is DCT, looking for new car friends in Italy.
