I have 275/60-15 and has another question.



I have a manual valvebody th350, 4:10 rear end and start my burnout in 3rd,6000 rpm, count 1,2,3 and let off.

I have 30 passes on them now and it's time to change, maybe they can take 10 more passes but I don't wanna risk anything.

How long is normal tire life?
Do I spin them too fast?Too high gear?
I would have expected at least 60-70 passes before these I had the M/T et street radials 275/60-15. I'm not sure if they lasted longer because I used just a 1st gear burnout and did not do so many passes per season.

The Hoosiers sure are momparable to the M/Ts and hav the advantage of less weight and wider thread width.

Bill,

This is what I've "heard".....no data to back it up. In the size 276x60x15.

Goodyear drag radials hook the best.
Hoosier 2nd best
M/T third best

That said, I sure haven't seen either the Hoosier or the Goodyear make any inroads into M/T's sales....at least not among the folks I race with.

Thanks for the info guys. If I can't get my car to handle better at the track, I may end up going back to a radial. The Hoosiers have less groves than the Mickeys or Goodyears which may stick slightly better? Also they have more tread in the same sizes as the others. Just curious. Bill.

Ron, your talking about drag radial slicks I think? At least as far as street (DOT legal) drag radials, I don't think anyone touches M/T.

Actually, I got it wrong, but the discussion was about drag radials.

Here is the tail end of the discussion.

"yes testing the two tires would be fun, I was down doing tires in bakerfield last summer and some of the racers were doing that. The good years produced the quickest times and second was the M and H's, M/T was third and hoosier was close to them. The M and H tire was really great tire, just not too many people know of it. We have sold some here lately and everyone was very pleased."

I don't know the author personally, but this thread took place in our heads up forum.
