    Hi all

    New member here. Been doing a ton of research but wanted some fresh opinions from experience or knowledge.

    I have a 2013 5.0 MT82
    SR Shocks/Struts
    3.5" 1 piece DS
    3.31 Gear
    Full exhaust
    Whipple Gen 5 3.0 Stage 2
    Exedy Clutch/flywheel
    751whp/595 TQ
    15x10 F14 Forgestars Rears
    275/60/15 MT ET Street R
    17x7 Radial Fronts

    Strictly a street car. My goal is to hook in 2nd and have very little sway or loose feeling up top. I know I have sway now probably because of the MT rears with radial fronts. I do not want to run skinnies.

    MT Street SS' be better?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Sorry for the long post

    Drag radials rather than bias-ply would probably help things.

    Not running low pressures down in the teens like you might at the strip for low speed traction would help as well. I don't think this point ever got mentioned. You'll probably wear out the tread centers faster, but that probably beats swapping ends at 100+.

    You're running 215/55-17 up front, right?

    MT says their et street r's (not the bias ply)are radials with an R2 compound. Find that hard to believe. They look and feel like bias ply. Currently running 22 lbs in the rear. Yes they are 215/55/17
