HELP! If I buy the 19\" Purner Wheels, what tires can I get?

What tires can I get that seriously bite? I've got 17's and the Kumho's Ive got on there now are awesome.. Anything close to those for the street?

Nope! , nothing comes close for the street, stick with 17's and Kumho's for traction on the street!

You can go to 18's and run the BFG's, which should be as good as the Kumho's, but you're stuck with Pilots for 19's. /images/graemlins/hot

I'm in the same boat....I wanted the Purners in the 19's but I want traction. I've decided on the Forgeline VR1's in 18's and running the BFG's.

Does anyone know how fast you can go on those DR's? I hope I can take them up to 180 or above. :ugh:

Yeah, I am curious too. My 18 inch BFG Drag radials just came in today and are now sitting in my garage. Doug Levin put some on the rear of my car he's working on, but I figured I would burn those up the 1st month I have the car back at home while I 'experiment.' SO I got a spare set here now.

I also have the 19 inch purners with the michelins, and they have less traction than the 17's with michelins, at least that was my experience on them.

Screw it. I wasjust after looks and the Purners are so inexpensive..
Too bad everyone wants crazzy money for nice looking 17's. Anyone know of a nice used set of Kenesis, HRE's for 17's? I'll stick with the Kumho's

I have the CCW 19s with 305 Pirellis- they dont hook for SHIT. I knew that going in, I just wanted them for looks - but its worse than I had imagined...and I dont put down near as much torque as you guys.
