Drag Radials only go up to a 17 inch rim. I have the Nitto 275/40/17 on my factory rims. The BF Goodrich tires do hook better then the Nittos. On the down side they only last half as long. If you wont drag radials you are going to have to drop down to a 17 inch rim.

forgot to say they make the BFG drag radial in the 18inch sizes..The local discount tire has a pair of 265/35/18's in stock,that i can buy real cheap..That's why I was asking.

I would make real sure they make the BF drag radial in the 18 inch size. I have never heard of a 18 inch drag radial. I would contact Bf goodrich and they will set you straight on the sizes.

If it is a 18" BFG Drag radial(it isn't) I would buy them all. There is a huge market for them, but no makers.

Nitto makes some for 18" rims, but they are far too large for our cars.

ok, the BFG tires are called BFG G-Force T/A R1's, not a true drahg radial but real close..They do look pretty sticky and a whole lot like a drag radial..If I keep the 18's on i am gonna try them on DHG#785..

The R1 is a road race tire. Very repected...and very soft. Good luck and let us know how it works out.

I have seen the tires you are talking about. They are know where near as sticky the BF goodrich drag radial. The Bf are made for Drag racing. With a hard burnout you could probably launch around 5000 rpms.
