Ok, so the deal is I run at the local track where once a month they have a day where only street legal cars can race. I picked up a set of bogarts to run at the track and can not decide what tire to go with. My car is a cam/nitrous car spraying 110 to the wheels(490hp/520tq) with a yank ss3600 and 373 gears with a race weight of 3540~lbs. I really want to run a drag radial but not sure what one to go with. I spray the whole shot right out of the hole as well. What tire would suit my needs best?

Thanks, Mike

I like the hoosiers alot, but i hate swapn wheels at the track,its one thing i will not do, i had a mts a while back and imo thats a great tire,i drive my car alot on the street so i changed to nitto drs, there not bad but the mts were better in every way on the performance side of things,what size were you thinking about

Its a 15x10 d10. I was thinking about 275 in hoosier or maybe 295 in the mt. Id like to keeo the weight as low as possible.

The Mickey radials are much heavier than the Hoosiers and pretty much every other tire.
