On the street or the track? If the street, less gas pedal.
On the track, MT ET Street drag radials in 10.5" tire on any wheel you can find. Stock SC, for 16", LX wheel for 15".

Ive seen some people fitting draglites on there car do you know how to make them fit?Ive looked them up and they don't sale the SC bolt pattern.

You have to do a mustang hub swap to run the draglites.Then you'll have a 5x4.5 bolt pattern.

How do you do that?

For the rear you'll need mustang cobra hubs and have them pressed into you're rear knuckles then either have your stock rotors redrilled to match the pattern or upgrade to cobra rear brakes.For the front you'll need 93 and up spindles then just buy a set of 94 and up mustang hubs and bolt on whatever set of mustang brakes up front.

where'd you find the convo's in the 5x4.25" pattern?

We might not need to do a mustang bolt pattern any more to run drag wheels (http://www.sccoa.com/forums/showthread.php?p=676078&posted=1#post676078)
