But they will get more mileage than the other DOT drag radials based on claims. I recently bought a new set of them only because the were 10 years old ! That said, for the most part these two combinations were pump gas street cars and seldom raced. In previous years for racing when a slick was not allowed we used M/T ET Street 28x12.50-15LT
Hi Steve .. i remember seeing your TransAm in an article/articles? Loved that car .. gorgeous.
OK ...now you got me thinking ...I have been driving around on BF Goodrich Radial TAs on my old Cragars ...just to have tires to drive on because i was eating up my 2cnd set of MT ET Street R tires and put them aside on another set of wheels to save what was left of them for the track.
So now maybe I will just put the Nittos on my Cragars and have them be my street tires ... then maybe Mazda Miata's and such wont beat me off the line when I'm driving around .. lol As the BF Goodslips are RIDICULOUS .. but my spool has yet to wear them out.
guess I'll buy another set of MTs for my track wheels
