I have been running 275/60-15 Nittos on both cars for about 20 years. 28" tires work better with these cars as far as loading the turbo and extending the mph by about 8%.  The nittos are not quite 28" but they are close.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

You probably know them all anyway

I have more street tires/rims than I know what to do with. I'll likely go with the stock GN rims with Cooper Cobra 235/60/15's up front. Out back I have my choice of stock GN rims shod with 255/60/15 DR's and another pair of stock GN rims with 275/60/15 DR's.
Hey Brad, is that 275/60/15 close to a 28x9 slick?  I'm looking for something I can run around on the street


yes, it is...a Nitto is the best street DR as it wears longer and does not need much, if any, warm up to work.  It does not grip as well as the M/Ts but it is a better, safer street option.  Still have to be careful in the wet if you get caught out.
