Recommended Drag radial size??

I was wondering what the recommendations were and what would fit on a stock 15" wheel, which I believe is maybe 6 or 6.5" wide, and also what are the recommendations/fit for a 17x7.5 wheel. I have an old set of 15" T-Bird wheels that I am debating putting DRs on just for the track, but my other thought is to put some MT ET streets on my current 17's so that I have the traction on the street as well. I barely put 3k miles a year on my car, so I figure I can get a couple years of use out of the ET streets. Please give me opinions and/or what you are running and have experienced.

Thanks,
Kevin M

I run 235/60/15 MT DR's on the stock 21 spoke Cougar wheels with good success.

I think thats about the only size that will "work" on 15s for the Birds. I run 255-50r16 BFGs and they seem to work well(although the 60' times stink).
