    With my ET Street Radials (26x10.5 on 15" Prostars)I started at 22 lbs and am working my way down one pound at a time. Need some more good track time however to know how low I am going to end up (guessing somewhere around 16 for the track).

    Yep. Follow this guy. I personally have never gona down the trak with those tires. I have warmed them up with a water patch and back road 1/4+ drag race though. When I went to the illegal DRing..... I went to 24 lbs. I warmed them up a ,little to much BEFORE I got to the water.... then.... Me being a newbie.... I didnt even get all the water off my tires. Just live and learn I guess. I luanched at 4000 RPM and bogged very sliightly. But they hooked dead on. The slip was ALL my fault fault though. The MT ET's are insane for hooking.

    Luos the tire man said it. They are a cheater slick. Period. I say try them out for a DD, if you dont like them (like I didnt) then go to nitto. ? . You have many options with the 9/5 and the 11.0. Must be nice.

    i heard a lot of talk about wobbly high speeds on the older styles, but i heard some guys saying that there 315s are fine. i just like the new style better, i also read they last longer.

    i have the MT ET STREET 2's , but havent used them yet, i got 315/30/18 for my 18x10.5 rims. havent even mounted them up.

    Edit!, heres some pics: sorry for the bad quality, they were taken by my cell phone

    i cant wait either, my car is in paint now. im doing:

    color change to black.
    cme (black satin powdercoated).
    those wheels and tires
    2% tint
    blacked out lights
    black halos up front
    satin emblems
    satin calipers
    satin lip on the rim

    its gonna look sick! but it will probably be about a month. because i cant afford front tires yes lol oh well a little at a time. Right now the car is in pieces, everything is off the car for paint.
