Well im going to get some new rims soon and i havnt decided which tires i know i want the Invos up front but should i get them out back as well or get the MT ET Streets or the NT05 ??

if your getting drag tires get some drag tires. no5's are ok but they wont hook nearly as good as a set of mt et drag radials, or even better a set of slicks

being an auto without a converter (even with the nitrous/cams) I'd just get 555r's & leave them on all the time.

^ what he said, switching drag radials at the track just seems like extra work, more gains would come from running a race wheel and bias ply slick but to each their own

with his mods, he'll be fine on the 555r's (with the stock converter & the torque loss from the intake, he can't leave hard enough to need anything else).

he really wouldn't see a gain from slicks at this time (other than mabie weight)

it can flash to around 2200 but when footbraked it starts to aerate & looses its torque multiplication abilities over 1000.

what do you plan to do 90% of the time? if it's driving on the street in summer, sometimes in the rain, i'd get some high performance summer tires and buy a set of racing tires or slicks later on. it doesn't make sense to me to get tires that are marginal for daily driving but work well for the 3 or 4 days a year you go to the track.

as far as which tires to get, i always start with the reviews from tirerack.com.

that's cool. my point is to get something that makes sense for most of what you do. if you go to the strip a lot, then drag radials would make sense. not trying to talk you into or out of anything, just suggesting to think about how you spend most of your time when in the seat and get something appropriate for that.

there are no down side to the 555r's. they will be able to 60' any number your car (in it's current state even with a converter) will be capable of, they are un-noticeable in the rain & quite a few guys have gotten 20k miles out of them.

as far as converters go, stay away from the urge to re-invent the wheel. 4r70w/mod motor combo's have been out long enough now that the top converter companies (really only circle d & dirty dog) have all the angles covered.
