I don't think you will have a problem with trying to make it hook. I have 10.5x33's on a 3400lbs car and run 4.80's and 7.70's all day on almost any track. The 16x33's are a little over kill unless you are going fast, they will slow a low powered car down ( less than 750hp)

Eric,

Here are some calculators that I have had good luck using.

I AM underpowred for a big tire.But I know a guy who built a 509 bbc(mine is 496) 16:1 comp with 365 heads and about a 850 lift cam.Made 1,050 hp on alky. That's what I hope to do one day.Don't think I want to try it on a stock block,though. Thanks for all the calculators guys.They are very handy,and I never can find stuff like that on my own.
