Need opinions on good traction street tire

My truck tires look like onions! I need some that are 295/50/15 or say 26-28 inches tall. I know M/T ET streets would be great but I'd rather get tires like BFG Radial T/A or Cooper Cobra's. The tires on it now are called Road Max?? They look good but suck at traction. I prefer some with white letters.

Any opinions would be great, thanks

Re: Need opinions on good traction street tire

I dont know if you want to go the BF goodrich route for traction. They look graet and I have them on my car but they light up pretty easy. I hear alot of guys that use street drag radial like Mickey Thompson Are the best. Look in a Summit Racing catalog there's a bunch in there

If these were white letters I would have already bought them. If I got these how many miles would they last?

They have some great looking tires in there especially the Mickey Thompson BUT they have some wierd sizes. I want the exact size of my front tires.

Re: Need opinions on good traction street tire

I have run the BFG T/A's in 295/50R15 on both a 81 Silverado and my 77 formula Firebird, They were nice looking tires but the traction was not that great and would usually wear through a set every season. I'm a long ways back from having to look for tires for the 68 yet, but it will not be the BFG tires this time out. good luck and let us know how what ever you choose works out for traction and wear.

Re: Need opinions on good traction street tire

Another option besides the ET streets are the Mickey Thompson Drag Radials. The ET streets will work but cops like to pick apart tires that are designed this way. The Drag Radials version work just as good if not better then the ET streets, and you will be left alone.
