How tall are your 295/45s when mounted on a 9" rim? I'm debating whether or not to go with them or some M&H 275/50s.

Sidewall Radius Diameter Circumference Revs/Mile
275/55-17 6.0in 14.5in 28.9in 90.8in 698

Sidewall Radius Diameter Circumference Revs/Mile
295/45-17 5.2in 13.7in 27.5in 86.2in 735

I'd guess my 295/45's are at 28" on a 9" wheel. Tire is about 32lbs


Next to my 32.5" 305/50R20 TerraGrappler on stock 20's at 90lbs+

It's funny how a 28" tire looks like a donut on these trucks.

I wonder how bad my truck would look with this drag setup? Not to hijack your thread but your truck in black even though it looks weird really helps make it still look good. I am afraid any color other than black would look awful

The guy I learned 90% my sh!t from goes by the username catsltd
Grant runs the exact same tires on his 2x4 RC long box at 13.5's NA

He told me "the only guys at the track that will say it looks stupid, is the one you just beat"

He was right, and its usually a guy in an R/T running 22's lol!!
..or a lifted duramax/powerstroke on 35's and 8" lift

I swap tires for track events for several reasons:

1) lighter weight
2) better traction
3) reduced effect gear ratio (4.30:1 vs 3.55:1)
4) reduced rolling resistance and less rotational mass
5) lower ride hieght by almost 3" for better aerodynamics

Bottom line, drops over a half second off my ET's 14.4's to 13.8's

I dont care what it looks like and most of my runs are after dark on Friday nights
so nobody can rally see it anyway, at least my 10' RCSB 4x4 has a 2/3 drop
which sits like a 4/6 hieght on my DR's
