New Drag Tyres

My new drag tyres arrived at work today. They are a new release from Mickey Thompson.....ET Street Radials. They are made with a slick compound, but have slight grooves cut into them. They are one of the only tyres MT produce that are sold in normal car sizes...mine are 235/60/15. By using these tyres I can stay in a real street car category (cause they r not classed as racing slicks) and still run normal tyres on the front. So i'll give you guys some feedback once i give them a run down the 1/4mile. I'm hoping they will help with my 60ft times.

Re: New Drag Tyres

I think the 235/60/15's are about $250 each. They've only just arrived from USA, but the feedback from there is excellent.

Re: New Drag Tyres

Sounds like a good price.

Interesting to see how they compare to Nittos

Re: New Drag Tyres

i have 2 nitto's in 17's coming in around 2 weeks, the guy that bought them for me was that impressed he purchased nitto's for himself...
the Mickey Tompson are good tyres also and for $250 each there a bargain...
EASPRINT where did you buy them from VPW ?
