I don't know. Can't say I'm motivated to do that just yet.

That and wet weather is the biggest reason I did this. Those stock goodyears have got to be one of the worst wet weather tires I've ever owned! In the dry they are just fine. But in the wet I've litteraly been following a co-worker and he had zero problems. I was right behind him at a safe distance and am having to steer and pedal it just to try and keep up at only 40mph.
Shoot.. he went accross a patch of ice w/o a problem and my ranger was stepping out something bad.

Those stock tires truely S-U-C-K!

I won't get them to the track til next March or April. Really.. this winter about the only modding I'll be doing is to complete a nice fiberglass airbox.
I might try to step the nitrous up to a 75 shot too.

Looks great. Im surprised you feel that you will run faster on a taller tire down the 1/4 mile tho. Its like effectivly reducing your gear ratio... you might trap at a higher MPH but you should run about 3 tenths slower if not more... IMO

Not sure where you got that understanding? I'll slow by about 1 to 2 tenths and trap speed ought to come in about 92 flat.

(this tire is a little over 1" taller and 6lbs heavier)
