I'm not sure if this is helpful but with a 295 on 19s I had to switch to a 30 profile to stay near the same total circumference as oem. I'm not well versed in drag setup so my information might not be helpful at all. Love my volks though. Gl

What width is your wheel? That will help determine what tire you can run. A smaller diameter wheel would be preferred for a drag setup.

My car is supercharged and I want to get the best 60 foot time as I can so I need the car setup right. How would you go about this with the ec-7s they would be good as I have brembos

Good question. I have 295 25 20 in rear. But with sc max traction should be allowed. I think 305 a would fit
