No its not Dewitt but I don't care what tire rack says, I have run them on 11 and 12 inch rims and I KNOW which is better and it is the 11 no ifs ands or buts about it.
With seeing everyone at the pointy end stretching hoosiers these days, I've always kind of wondered if your car would be faster on something like 13's-14's (maybe 13's for the Rivals) instead of 11's or 12's? Considering how people run 275's on 11's and 295's on 12's now, etc. I think 335 on an 11= pinched and 335 on a 12=square. I don't think I've ever seen stretched tires on that car.

I have a set of 12 inch rims I am going to try the bfg on and I do think they may respond better but not sure I think the hoosiers would.
