Drag Tire Tech Tips With Mickey Thompson | StangTV

DRAGZINE: There are several, conflicting schools of thought regarding how to best “break in” a set of drag tires. What is M/T’s recommended break-in procedure for both slicks and drag radials?

Carl Robinson: “There is really no break-in procedure. Using the tire in its intended application will “break” a tire in. Tire life can be negatively affected if you do an excessive burnout with the thought of “breaking the tire in,” though some professional classes pre-run the tires in order to shed weight and stabilize tire circumference.”

So you think just daily drive them for a few miles before any burnouts or launches? They're gonna be my dd so no burnouts just maybe some launches here and there.

When I got my nitto nto5r I just drove them to the track and they were fine , I did 3 runs that day with burn outs for all three , no issues, if its your dd why are you putting dr's on they suck in the rain real bad, why not a great radial like a BFG G force tire?

Cuz I want wide true 315s and that's what i got for $170 per tire. Vs a nitto tire that's narrower and more expensive. We don't get much rain here and I don't drive over 35mph
