In the pictures from the following post, what size tires are you running in the rear and do you have any spacers installed?

edit: Just saw in your other thread you are running a 305/35/19 DR in those pictures. I would go with the Toyo R888 in 305/30/19 and call it a day. This tire should still fit fine given your current setup and it won't be as bulky. The narrower size tires will be too stretched on a 12" rear wheel and the PS2's aren't very sticky so I wouldn't consider them for your car. Then just swap to your M/T's when you absolutely need more traction for the drag strip/roll races.
All I know is those M/T make me nervous when I'm next to a cop. And I know the profile is 35 but they look "really blocky and big compared to another 35 series tire." they are sticky as ****, but are gonna wear fast. I need something that's not gonna wear so fast and not make my ride resemble a stink bug or joe dirt, but be as sticky as can be. I'm not sure the r888 look like they might be blocky.
