Default Drag Radials for 17/18 inch rims

I have the 10th anniversary rims for my 03 cobra and I also have 18 inch Saleen rims. This year I can't decide which rims to go with so I wanted to get opinions or possible pictures of your drag's.

If you have 17 inch or 18 inch drag radials please give me some advice(brand, SIZE, etc.)

I'm preparing for the stock 03 Cobra vs the 2010 Camaro SS showdown soon.

thanks!

The more sidewall you can get the better, go with the 17's if not smaller.

you want as much sidewall as possible.. run a 16 if you can (wish i am). I have a 275-40-17 M/T DR and it's a great tire, but I wish I would have went with a 16" though

275/45/17 Mickey's street radial will be fine on a stock car @ about 13-14 psi.
Better yet is 295/45/17 they will fit. I just did it on my 10th ann rims.

Stock clutch? IRS brace?

Get the 275s, not the 295s.
