ET Streets will hook 99% of the time.

What "both worlds"??? looking for TRACK tires..... E.T. STREETS :thumbs: I did drive to the track with them on the car last wednesday (NOT FUN). I can not wait until thr E.T. STREET RADIAL comes out. I will use those for the STREET to go with my radial tires up front. But at the TRACK, bias plys definitly are softer & stickier than a radial tire. :eek:

For Drag Radial I choose BFG over Nitto (Mickey Thompson has a drag radial coming out next year we need to try)

For DOT Slick, we really only have one choice. Mickey Thompson ET Street. Works great.

I get more runs out of ET Streets. Almost twice as many. The Drag Radial feels better on the street since it is a radial but once you get the treads off it, it is just as slick.

That M/T E.T. STREET RADIAL also "looks" real cooooool. I'm sure with M/T's technology, it'll work as good, most likely BETTER than B.F.G.'s D.R. :thumbs:

By the way, I'm not looking to run the D.R.'s at the track. They "should' give me more traction on the street (when DRY) and look TUFF parked at a cruise night :D :D As long as the car "GOES" it's gotta look good too!!?? :rofl:

Has anyone had any experience with either the hoosier quick time pro 28 11.5 16 I think or the Hoosier drag slick 28 10 16?I think the 28 10 16 would work great with my car but I am concerned about rubbing. Especially on the big end.

I have used Hoosier Quick Time Pro"s on my Buick GN and Love them. Not good in rain though.

If you want a race tire that's good on the street I would try the Nitto's . They hook well on a good preped track and are great to drive on .Rainy days you have to drive with more caution. :thumbs: :cheers:

I used the Hoosier Quick Time pros and they worked great on my Nova. It went 11.30s with 1.48-1.52 at a weight of 3400 (without me).
