Re: drag radial help

From what I've read the MT ET Streets are the best available.

Re: drag radial help

MT ET Street Radials and you can still run them on the street. You don't want to Run ET Streets on the street. They run them on 7 sec cars. I have cut 1.5 60fts. SO far I have out 60ft'd every person I have ran with with same mods or power as me and them using ET Streets. I run a 295/55/15 on Weld RT-S rims. The smaller tire 15" are cheaper then going with 18's. Also you have a lot more selection.

Craigslist and eBay time.
You'd be much better of mounting your drag radials on a separate set of wheels and only using them at the track. Being of a lot softer compound than regular tires they will wear quickly if delegated to DD duties.

Re: drag radial help

Search other forums 4 sale sections. People are always selling rims and stuff. Hell I had a pair of bigs/skinnies I got for 500 with tires and all. I later got rid them for the Welds.

I had Nitto NT05R's on my G8. With 500whp I could blow them off. Same HP level on the mustang my MT dead hook.

The street tires are really good. The NT05's I had seem really good less it was cold. Then again what hooks when its to cold out.

I believe that he was saying they are better for street use, but that the NT05R doesn't hang with the MT ET Streets for track-only tires. You don't want to put the MTs or the NT05Rs on for much street driving.

Oh ok I got ya. I'm about to get some radials and I was set on the nittos but I guess I need to reconsider. My car isn't a DD but it's not track only either so I figured the nittos would last longer. But if it's that big of a difference between the two then I'll just go with the MT.

I would say you wont get more than 10k miles of useful life out of either tire ... maybe 15k if you're really nice to them. Keep in mind that you also can not drive on most of these tires in temperatures below 40 degrees. In many cases, simply moving the car will ruin the tire.

If you're going to drive your car on the street you may want to consider something like a Nitto NT555, Nitto NT05 (not R), or the Hankook Ventus V12.

Out of a DR you will not get much out of them driving on the street. Then running at the tarck. Maybe 3-5K if lucky. I have about 20 passes on mine and then about 2500 miles on them street driving. They are starting to wear pretty good. No DR is going to last in the street. They are to soft for it.

I took delivery in June and I have just over 400 miles on the car. So if I could get 3-5k miles out of them then I'm fine. Just trying to figure out the pros and cons of NT 05R and MT

Re: drag radial help

MT are better, There reason 6-7 se4c cars are running them over NT05R's. Plus cheaper. More tire size options.
