Tires that will hold 800whp?

What tires are my best bet for not spinning with this kind of power. Should I get street tires and run low boost (500whp) then put on some sticky drag

Default Tires that will hold 800whp?

What tires are my best bet for not spinning with this kind of power. Should I get street tires and run low boost (500whp) then put on some sticky drag radials and run 800whp when im going to half mile events or can i daily on drag radials.

That because they have great traction control and boost by gear from the factory.

I'd run the r888r's on the street, as a matter of fact, I am. As for a drag tire set up, someone else will have to help you. That's something I just don't know anything about. I know there are various threads on the site discussing it if you do a search.

Yes, but there is another article stating that the r888r's was the only street tire that got them into the 8's.

Wondering how well these will hold up in 305/30/19 pushing 800whp......

Spooler would probably have a better idea how well they would hold up with that knid of power.

You said you have these tires? I see you have 680whp. How bad is the wheelspin?

You need to have 325/30/19's on a 11.5 in. rim to even have a chance of them hooking. I see you are in Ontario. Temps will lesson your traction, the farther below 80 deg F. the worse it will get. I would assume you park your car for the winter. If so, you can run R888r's. Expect to get about 7k miles out of them max. If you want to hook on the 1/2 mile you will be switching to MT Street R's on a 17x10.5 wheel.

You are going to need to upgrade the diff also. The factory VLSD will kill you.

Just curious, have you ever had a turbo car with 800hp?

I run a 315 and wheelspin is pretty nonexistent but my car is supercharged so it doesn't have the low end torque of a turbo car and I'm in Southern California and my tires come up to temp real quick.

It’ll be a while before your build is done, so this is hypothetical at this point.

Too many factors to consider. Skills, experience, asphalt temp, rubber temp, shocks and springs, alignment, LSD, gear ratio, management/tuning of the torque....

800 whp on this car will spin any tire you put on it to be honest. It’s up to the driver to tame it.

All I have to say is it is humbling............

The last 1/2 mile event I did was the hardest thing I have ever tried to do in a car.
