Anyone try the new M/T sportmans PRO'S

Im in the market for for a new rear street tire with a DOT stamp, and decent thread that last and can handle some rain if i had to, and actually have sum decent traction when fooling around (every1's dream tire yea i know haha)

I have M/T ET drags for the track, and for the street im just finishing off a set of M/T ET radials, those tires were good, but they wear too quick and they get almost undriveable in damp weather, wanted to try sumthing new, i have sportsman fronts and was thinking about the Sportman Pro's for the back, any1 have any experiance with them? the Pros supposely have a drag compound now, wrinkle walls and barley DOT approved (which i like the sound of) havent heard too much about them, i seen vega's with these 15" wide tires at the track using these and they were hooking and booking (single digit cars)

I just feel like trying them out so i can at least say i tried these tires for myself and be one of the few to review them. but any info on the tire would help!

Re: Anyone try the new M/T sportmans PRO'S

I am not sure but your discription sounds like just plain sportsman not pros.I have 18.5-31-15 sportsman pros and wish I went just sportsman.I may be wrong.I am not fond of the pros spin first to second gear with no hook what so ever.

Re: Anyone try the new M/T sportmans PRO'S

although its not on the M/T website, summit still list 5 different sportsman series tires

these are the 1's im talking about that iam very interested in: M/Tmickey thompson sportsman PRO
Bias-ply, barly DOT approved, TUBES required! "they have a drag racing compound for better traction, and a two-ply wrinkle wall carcass for better suspension reaction"


there is just regular sportsman, which i just realized that they only make 29" and up tires, so forget my original comparison...

but i also see these and they SOUND good any1 try the M/T Indy profile S/S tires?
Bias-ply, DOT approve, no tube required, "hot and sticky drag compund that gets almost as soft as a drag race slick when the tire heats up, giving you plenty of traction"


and last there is the M/T sportsman "I" tires:
Bias-ply, 4-ply sidewall DOT aprrove, no tube required, interlocking "I" thread pattern "that girps any surface", most thread dept


if u have used any of these 3 tires i would like ur input on them, streetmanners? highway? traction or street or strip? thanx guys...
