I have finally settled on 9 and 10.5 Anthracite Bullitt wheels (17") for the B. I want to go with the Nitto DR's, but I have a question. How are they in the rain? I won't intentionally drive it in the rain. I am more concened with being stuck in the rain. Is the B just tough to drive with them in the rain, or nearly impossible? I hope to order them today!
Thanks,
Bruce

The Nitto drags are the best drag radials for street use. It is still not advised to go romping through the rain at 70mph with them, but they will certainly have better street manners than ET Streets or even BFG drags. However, they won't hook as good as either of those at the track either.

Thanks, that's the answer I'm looking for!:smile:

I thought of those big wide bad looking wheels,with big Nittos,for the rear also,but figured the weight penalty of them at the track would slow down the Bullitt. So went with the M/T,in smaller size for stick and quick! The stock Bullitts will be fine for my street use.

I was all set to order the Nitto DR's (315's) from AAmerican Muscle until I read this Advisory about Nitto DR's:

Do you think this is a real concern? I won't likely be driving the B below 32 degrees. The car and tires will be stored in a garage that can go below 32. I do like to start the car every 2-4 weeks in the winter and drive it up and down the driveway.

Thanks,
Bruce

I have had Nittos 555's 18x9's for about 5 years now and had no problems, but they are not DR's. I rarely drive the car in winter but had to a few times. Missed driving it or had my DD was in the shop, other than that it sits in the garage. And yes I had the same tires for 5 years, just goes to show how much I drive the mustang lol
