Mickey Thompson ET Street S/S Tires

Anyone out there run these both front and rear just for the street?? Want to run these on the rear but am also looking for a good 15" tire that is better on the front than the BFG's for the street.

Hmmm, good thinking, I hadn't considered that. I will look it over and see if there's an issue with the wire. A 38 year old sender is probably not ideal either. Just hope the gauge isn't getting...
