Re: pro street tire recommendation
I ran BFG drag radials for a couple of years on my daily driver back when they first came out. They actually handle decent, and traction is much improved. I would use up a set in a year, 12-15000 miles. I took it easy on them driving but did race it a lot too, they like a good burnout so that uses them up. Traction gets scary in the wet though.
The Mickey Thompson et drag radials are much better at the track, but rain use would be really scary and they don't last as long.
I have heard positives about Nitto d/r on the street as well.
My guess is tire size needs will determine what to use also.
