28 inch tall tire for drag strip?

Have an 03 2wd with a Superchips 1704 on performance setting. Currently running 235/85/16's and best time is around a 14.5 with about a 2.7 60ft time. I cannot launch at any RPM without breaking the tires loose. I think this truck could be in the 13's with a drag radial or slick on it.

Anyways, would a 28 inch tire be too short for these trucks? It's got factory .3.73's in it. I would also be willing to get an SCT with custom tunes and adjust the tire size.

Yes, I said that an 03 2wd 6.0 would be in the 13's with traction. Don't ask. This truck flat out hauls *** for some reason.

If you don't drink Dos XX's, you need to start today.

The stocks on mine are 31.5 inches tall.

If I can't get a drag radial on them, there has to be a tire that can hook alot better than e-load highway tires.

Yes, there are taller track tires out there! However, they usualy get much wider. Call Summit tomorrow!

Yeah, I think this one could get a 13 with just the Superchips and traction. A 2.7 60ft sucks! I was cutting 1.9's in my 4x4. And running 14.3 with custom tunes and studded.

I think it is because it is an 03, one of the first builds, and it is 2wd. So much lighter than a 4x4.

I can't find a radial in that size. And the slicks I see only come for 15" rims.

I have a set of 28x11.50x16 ET Streets that I've been trying to get rid of if you're interested.
