I have finally driven my "72 and I would like to know what some of you have chosen for tires in the back. I have an L28 stroker w/ at least 180hp to the rear wheels from what I can estimate from this website and seat of the pants. I have a 5-speed close ratio and a 3.90 gear. Right now I have 205/55-16's mounted on 7 inch rims. Unfortunately in order not to spin them violently or burn up the clutch I have to pretty much stomp on it from idle and it still will spin the tires. And shifting to second at 6000rpm(and I should get power even highr with my mikunis and cam) sets the wheels spinning and fishtails it. Exciting but not necessarily quick. I think I can go to a 225/50-16 on these rims without rubbing. Since this is a hobby car maybe I could go with stickier rubber? Or can someone with similar power to weight give tell me what they find gives a better acceleration time ie, smooth of the line or sling shot?
