Re: Tire size for 408 stroker
Tire size to "hook" is an ambiguous question that cannot be answered by a tire size. Better to know more, gears, type suspension, traction adders...caltracs, slappers, coil over 4 link, transmission? Most important, what are you goals in priority....10. sec passes, Street cruising etc.
No true street tire is going to "hook", especially with a 408, unless your running a 2:79 gear with a C4 and no stall and bogging the motor so bad it wont make power.
You can get DOT drag radials etc that will do significantly better, and hook very well, not stick out from under the car if you go about the whole set up properly. It all has to work together.
I was taught, and am of the mindset, when you build a performance car of any shape, intent. Start with what your main goals are, then build it from the rear suspension forward. let us know what you have and want to accomplish and we can give you some helpful hints.
