Good tires the BFG Drag radials! Your ET times should drop and they will stick alot better at the track.

I found them to be a great street/strip tire.

Re: Bf goodrich drag radials

I went 11.70 on a pair and they always hooked for me at the track. They drive decent and wear decent as well. On my Mustang I used to use as a daily driver I ran a pair, they lasted about a year per set.
However the M/T ET drag radials are better still, they are stickier and the ride is just as good on the street. The other thing I have found is my BFG's liked a big burnout and the M/T's don't need to be much more than heated up, so using them at the track the M/T' seem to have lasted longer.
Either tire is a great street strip compromise and are perfectly capable of low 11's high 10's without major tricks, and even faster with some dialing in the suspension. There are cars going well into the 7's on 275-60/15 ET drag radials .
