    want to put 275's dunlops z1's on the back...anyone else think there really heavy?!?

    i'm tring to find a good street/drag tire that i can daily drive. right now i have 255's dunlop z1's out back and i'm getting new wheels that will allow me to run 275's on my 135 but when i looked up the dunlops in that size...there 32lbs!! atleast 5lbs heavier then any other tire close to it in the same size. any suggestions?

    thats a tough one, 5 lbs heavier at that radius is alot of rotational inertia.

    As long as you race people form a dig and hook up with all that beef, your traction gains should outweigh the tire weight disadvantage...
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    Honestly, width and compound over weight. I know it's 5 pounds but traction is more important.

    they should hook very well, but i dont think you can fit 275 on a 1er
