I think that's the ones I'm running. Not sure I'll have to check model numbers. I won't drive in rain. They do not like water at all. Dry blacktop they are awesome. Grab very well.

Hoosiers hook up the best. But 150 is a great deal

I've got 574rwhp. I have to make them spin 2nd and won't spin 3rd on good hot blacktop. Very satisfied. From the dig still spins hard but it is still a street tire. They also work great in cornering. Car stays glued.

That mach1 has got the solid axle. ET street. Slicks. M&H's. Might cost more but they really work.

Re: Which drag radials

I had a set of Mickey Thompson ET Street Radials, on my TA. They grabbed really hard. They're not something I would recommend for wet weather, but if they were on the car and I needed to run to the store, and it was raining, they weren't scary. I've never had the regular ET Streets, so I can't really compare.

Re: Which drag radials

ET street II's. Hook my car with no issues at the track. Just remember they like heat and learn to mess with air pressure to get it right.

For reference, I'm running a 315/45-16 at about 12lbs and it loves it. Kinda squirly at high speeds but that's just part of it.

The ET streets are good. But depends on how power you have. I make 650 rwhp and chirp them in 4th. But they do look bad *** haha
