I dropped half a second when I went to 28" tall 295/45R17 drag radials on my 10' RCSB 4x4 with 3.55's
I have been looking for some 17" steelies that will fit my truck. I can't imagine what it would do if i didn't have these massive goodyears on it. I really don't want to spend a pile of money, so used ram takeoffs is my best bet, and only DR's in the back so front tires can be any low profile tire. I figure if i can do it for less than $500 then i might have a chance at convincing the wife that it's a good idea.
