Default M/T ET street Rís

Does anyone have any experience with the M/T ET Street Rís? Most of the info I could find was on the s/s. Iím in the market for a new set of DRís street/track (never in the rain so thatís not a factor)

Just curious to see what others run, opinions? Reviews?

I tried a set of 275/17's & was able to get a 1.51 60 ft n/a. They hook well but I would not recommend for much street driving.

Not even on sunny dry days? car only comes out on nice days.
would you steer toward the Et street s/s than?

i only put about 1000 miles a year on, if that. Handful of track days if i'm lucky, but mostly street miles

I had SS's on last year, they did better on the street but did not hook as well on the track.

Did the ss's hook decently on the street? i am around 550-600rw
Assuming a lot better than a summer tire.
Have you noticed a considerable loss in performance in cornering with them (know they aren't made for that)

what kind of driving will you be doing on the street?... if you mainly do rolls the s/s will do great at that power level... I can dead hook 50-60 rolls and from a dig they will break look at about 5-5500rpm but from second gear on they hold, with your power they very well may hold all of 1st gear.. I have never used the "r" but I would like to get a set to use for the track or half mile events so I can use all of 1st gear

Rolls or digs. Mostly rolls Iíd say. it would just be nice to have something hold 2nd at least.

I do a cruise once a month with some buddies, nothing crazy but they are twisty back roads. How are taking corners on s/s? Sketchy? Like I said nothing crazy itís not like weíre going all out.

The "R's" hook up great.
I have them on my 10 second street truck and with Toyo's I was going sideways with half gas in 2nd gear. Now I can hit 2nd gear at 50mph and she runs straight as an arrow and pulls hard.

I have run them on my 10 second vette too and they hold great. I was told to stay clear of the SS. I thought they were the same compound. Anyway...you will like the R

Street SS will not hook on the street for you below 3rd most likely. My NA 530whp with 4.10s doesn’t get traction until half way through 3rd with street SS tires. Testing M&H racemasters now....not going great.....probably try street Rs next. Good luck in the hunt for traction!!!!

for rolls they are great especially when hot... you really don't have to do burnouts on them, just drive around for awhile to get them hot and they will stick... that will also help make them last longer... they handle decent for what they are but don't get greedy and try to take hard corners... also avoid moderate to heavy rain at all costs, these are by far the worst drag radials I have ever used when in water however they are the best I have used on dry pavement... I'm pretty confident they will hook 2nd no problem and possibly all of 1st as well with your setup and power level

remember he has a centrifugal blower so it won't make gobs of power down low which will allow the car to get traction and then the power will come in up top, I think he would be just fine at his power level with the s/s... the gearing on your setup will also make it harder to get traction

Street R's would hook better at the track for me then the S/S's, consistent low 1.5's on the R's consistent mid 1.5's on the S/S's. I could overpower and spin the S/S's occasionally on the launch, never had that issue with the R's. On the street it was the opposite, S/S's would hook better then the R's. Both are terrible if you get caught in the rain.

I am running the 305/35-18 SS on my car, 640/640 at the tire, 4L65 and the car hooks like crazy on the street so far, this in cooler weather as well.
Hope to get to the track soon.
I think you'll have good results with those tires.
