Start at 24 lbs and see how they work.

I just tried out my new set of 315 35 17 drag radials last week at the track in Memphis. I couldnt hook with 20lbs. My best 60ft was 2.18. Any suggestions??????

I have had good success at 21 PSI on mine.

Be sure you get a fair burnout on them to make them sticky.

Oh yes, white smoke is a must.

Take a look at these pics of my car the red c5 with 6467 on the glass at http://www.corvettechallenge.info/2002/event5
