I am currently running 275/40/17 nittos. I would like to find a drag radial in a 275/50/17 who makes that size? I want to go with a taller tire to knock a few rpm's off at the top of the 1/4. thanks John

nobodyy makes a 275/50/17 DR but MT does make a 295/45/17 DR which is 28" tall.

with 4.10's you do need a 28" tall tire.

whats your trap speed, and in what gear, and RPM?

actually with the bigger sidewall it may fit ok.

jsut curious though, why not just buy a set of prostars for the rear soem 15X8's with 6.5" backspacing, and then a set of 28X11.5" slicks. that would be your best bet.

MT DR's wear VERY quickly.

4.10s would raise your rpms going thru the finish, unless it gets you to the next gear that much quicker
