Not rain driven or snow driven: won't even drive if it is sprinkling. Want drag radials so bad. What's the best? Always thinking Nitto because that's what's on now. But radials don't have a lot of tread at all. Mickey Thompson ET street radial? Input guys, thanks for the replies. also, I have 10 inch wide tires in the rear. Don't really care about the front.

Idk if you can get long life out of a drag radial. As what is best there's many opinions on this. I ran Hoosiers and nothing but good stuff about them sticky but mines didn't last long as I tracked it and dragged it

Look at treadwear ratings. Your Mt Dr and hoodies are likely to be around 100AA. If you want a little longer and street able life check out the falken azensis 615. They're a sick street tire and you can launch hard on them. My buddy has had then all summer and with about 10k km on them they have plenty of tread left. That includes a bunch of burnout too.

What about the NTO5R? That a TRUE drag radial.
Never heard anything about em, stay away from nitto drag radials tho

There's a reason why EVERYONE at the track uses ET streets or Hoosiers

Oh cops won't care, my buddy daily drove slicks 40 miles a day, just don't get into an accident because if they see those tires you'll be in alot of trouble

nittos are more of a street DR where as the MT are more of a strip DR. I say go with the nittos, I know about a dozen high hp guys using nitto DRs on the street and they're pretty damn good. the MT are a drag slick with lines cut in them for DOT approval. they even has bias ply wrinkle walls, which is exactly how the sidewalls of slicks are made. I would get the 555R or the 05R. or maybe even look at th michelin Pilot Sport PS2, pretty sticky and I've seen lots of people get 30k+ out of them.



not a DR but pretty good street tire

well crap I tried to insert a pic but it didn't work, just google michelin PS2

Cops aren't strict at all. I don't wanna go with slicks becuz the throw you ALL over the road. But the ET seem way too slick for me. nittos, as said before, are more of a street DR so I think Nitto might be it...
