did you try wider rims ????
Have you tried the Nitto drag radials?? They are a much softer tire.

larry, i have 275/40r-17 nitto 555r drag radials on there now,
(2 week old) i have tried from 30psi to 14psi tire pressure,these
tires break loose at around 65mph! when the converter lets go
around 4k its like a damn slingshot,then tire smoke,now when i say these dont hook, this is from a 10mph roll not from a powerbrake

is this normal

Try ET Streets. Not the ideal tire to drive around on, but if you're serious about racing and straightlining, then try those.

Drive around on lower boost levels on the street as well. Crank up the boost if you're at the track.
