Drag Racing Tech - ET Street Users What Tires Are You Running on The Front Of Your Car

I have heard that if you run ET streets you must also run a bias ply tire in the front of your car. Because you will have handling problems at high speeds if you use a radial tire in the front of your car with et streets. Just wondering what tires you are running if you are running ET streets.

I run little Pep Boys Futuras as skinnies. No problems. Just make sure you have 30 psi in the ET Streets... or they start trying to steer for you <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="gr_images/icons/wink.gif" />

if you run anywhere from a 15x4 to 15x6 on the front then the m/t sportsman fronts are good tires to use. you can get them in 4 or 8 ply. they recommend 8 ply for cars weighing i believe 3000 lbs or heavier.
I run the 26x11.5x16 ET Streets with stock Goodyear RSA's up front. 38psi front, 16psi rear. With the rear, they may seem to "steer" going down the track, but all they are doing is finding the groove. Once and while I'll spin to much launching and put the rear off of the groove and usually about mid track, the rear will hunt for it. No real concern or need to freak, you just feel the back kind of sliding a little until it settles in the more worn area then it's all free sailing.
