Finding it hard to get traction when nailing it from 3k rpm with a launch spinning and fishtailing out of 1st and second. Do you think my tires are not upto it? I have dunlop SP8000 255/40/ZR17 all around.

Are you getting wheel hop?

255s ain't shit dude.


You need at least 275s on the rear. Try a different tire with a softer compound.

I have 255s on my M3 and have a little over half the horsepower you put out and they don't stick THAT well. Go get some wide ass tires.

275s aren't even good enough for some brands. I am gonna try 285s next time. BTW, most people will agree that a Supra is better balanced with larger tires in the rear, at least 20mm more than the front. I would get at least get 285s.
