    Anybody running M&H tires?

    Anybody running these? Looking at the 275/50/17 DRs, may switch out my Mickeys for these. Have heard nothing but good things about them, just curious if anybody has any comparison experience to the MT DRs?

    I used M&H's many years ago, but it was their bias ply cheaters way back before all this drag radial stuff came around.

    I have however used drag radials since the BFG's hit the market, and experimented with Nitto's too. When I made the switch to MT's when they were first introduced there was no comparison, and ran my best 60 foot times to date. I've used them ever since.

    Now that M&H has a drag radial out I've also been anxious to try, since they have a bit of nostalgia feeling for me. But since the MT's are working so well for me, and the fact that they currently hold the drag radial records, I'm a bit reluctant to let go at this point.

    I still have another season of life left on my MT's, so I'm probably going to wait a while and keep an eye out at the tracks to see just how well the M&H's are working for other people.

    Well, they've got a 275/50/17 and a 275/55/16.

    Everyone I know is running the Mickeys, few guys with Nittos, but nobody with M&H. Everyone I know, loves the hell outta their Mickeys however. The thing that I like is that they offer a bigger sidewall with theirs, than MT does... March is a ways off yet, so I've got till then to decide. Really curious to see if anyone else has any feedback

    Mickey Thompson has had a 28 inch tall tire out for 17 inch wheels for quite a while now. Quite a bit of sidewall.
    Is M&H offering something even taller??

    Ya, I think the M&H's are still somewhat fresh, and being the time of year it is things are a bit slow at the tracks. They run year round here, but it'll be Jan or Feb before things really start to pickup, and I'll have to watch the schedule for DOT fastest street car shootouts to see what people are using.

    I just checked, MT still offers a 28 inch tall tire for a 17 inch wheel, and they even offer a 29 inch tall tire for an 18 inch wheel.

    At that point though, you are starting to reach the limits of what a 4th gen wheel opening will accept without trimming.

    I shopped M&H, M/T, and Hoosier for tires. I eventually went with Hoosier QTP's due to a sizing issue, but I liked what I saw in the M&H's.
