well, let me start off by saying that what you read in magazines is not always the best idea. I waet to the dragstrip and ran my tibby, well they say the smaller tires run quicker times. well my stock tiburon tires slipped like I was on ice. so with my nitrous and all my mods the best I could get was a goddamn 15.3 at 94mph. I had to baby it off the line other wise it would spin all through 1st and 2nd and 3rd. even when I did ease it off the line when I banged second the tires would squeel for 20 feet. This saturday is import day so I will run my bigger tires and I should easily be in the 14s.<img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle>

Stick with your stock wheels, but go with a tire that has more grip that the stock tires. The stock tires on the tibby are known for poor traction.<img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>

Yeah those stock tires suck. I went to the track and didn't have to many problems with my 16's. Very little tire spin off the line but I was stock also. But I want to go back and see what I run now with my mods on.

Matthew reduce your tire pressure to 22psi and you will get better traction. I had the same problem with my stock (15s) wheels and when I reduced the pressure the car start from the line a lot better with less wheel spin.

Matthew, go to http://www.discounttiredirect.com they have some Falken Drag Radials (205/50R15) for $62 a piece. Two of those would work wonders on your front tires when you go to the strip.

That Falkens are the same that I have now and they have better grip.
