Ready for some traction this year!

345/30R19 Nitto NT555RII drag radials should yield a little more traction this year.

Coming from 285/30R20 and 305/30R20 PS4S on stock wheels to 305/30R19 PS4S and 345/30R19 Nitto NT555RII on Apex ARC-8 ZLE fitment.

Nice!! I've heard good things about the R II's. I'm sure it will be a big difference coming from the PS4's. Post some pics when you get them on the car. I see your in NJ who is mounting them for you? I'm still trying to decide who to bring my Toyos to, they are only 315's but dont want my rims all scratched up by the dealer

How well do these hook up on the road?

My biggest gripe about my ZL1 is how hard it is to get traction

My ZL1 hooks up amazingly well for its power level, about 800 crank HP. I had a Hellcat prior to my ZL1 and it wouldn't hook for nothing stock or modified. Nothing short of running a drag radial would get it to hook. My 800hp ZL1 hooks pretty good even on the stock size Goodyear Supercar 3 tires.

Traction - the bane of all Gen 6 particularly with mods

Mine is totally stock, but still struggles for traction at launch.

Because they hook better for drag racing and they aren't noisy.
