Product Description

Reduce Wheel Hop and Tire Slip
We developed our Alpha Performance Wheel and Tire Package to be a much better solution than any other drag radial or street tire option previously available. By incorporating a stickier compound drag radial to your GT-R’s setup and shorter wheel diameter, traction improves tremendously when launching on an un-prepped surface. The taller, more flexible side walls provide additional bite – reducing tire slip as energy is transferred to the pavement. In addition, wheel hop is notably reduced when compared to the standard size 20” wheels and street tires. This makes it the ultimate DOT compliant GT-R drag wheel and tire combo for use on the street.

Save Your Prized Transmission From Wear & Tear
By reducing wheel hop, you are also reducing stress exerted on your transmission and other drivetrain components. When the high level of power and torque from your GT-R is being applied to the ground during a full out launch, wheel hop often occurs. When this violent shaking occurs it wreaks havoc on your $20,000+ GR6 transmission! In addition, it subjects your axles, differentials and other drivetrain components to abuse – all of which can be reduced with our Alpha Drag Wheel & Radial Package.

Substantially Reduce Rotating Mass
Each wheel & tire of this package weighs in at 52lbs for 15in setups and 42lbs for 17in setups! When compared to the average stock wheel & tire combo, you are shedding over 10-20lbs of rotating mass per corner. This is important because the less mass the engine and drivetrain have to move, the better the acceleration and low-end power – not to mention less chance for drivetrain breakage.

One of the Most Important Investments You Can Make
Considering all the advantages this wheel and tire combo offers, most racers would agree, it’s an upgrade that shouldn’t be overlooked when making higher-than-stock horsepower and torque on both un-prepped and prepared drag strip surfaces alike. The result you get with the Alpha Performance Wheel and Tire Package is improved 60ft times as well as more complete contact with the ground during launch and in between shifts. Ultimately, you will improve acceleration and braking, consistently lower ET’s and increase trap speeds when compared to a street tire.
