I have a friend that had those and he was cutting 1.6 60' using Nitrous off the line.
I think the size was 315/35/18

i was going to get those because they're stickier, but with the stickier tire means it wont last as long. so i went with the Nitto drags

45 isnt the width, the first number is the width, then the second number is a sidewall ratio. so whatever 45% of 225 is = the sidewall height X2 + rim size + height.

and its 225MM wide BTW.

those are going to be some short, skinny tires, they're going to spin more, and your going to have a shift more. no way your going to hook the power of that KB on those.

should have gotten MT E/T street 275/40/17 they fit pretty good on the stock GT rims.

the BFG 275's also run really big, and may buldge so much on your 8" rim that it would actually hurt contact patch.

i would order the MT's, they're better, and i think cheaper.
