    I am looking to buy either the BFG drag radial or the MT drag radial for a combined use of street and strip. THey are virtually the same price through summit. I'd like to hear personal preferences or experiences.....

    The MT's won't last long on the street.
    But they will outhook the BFG's.

    I run a Nitto DR for street and MT DR for track.

    A decent amount of difference.

    What mods?

    MT's probably won't go 3500 miles. Very soft tire.

    Suspension?
    A4 or M6?

    The BFG's hook fairly well for most apps.

    M6. I am upgrading the clutch, but haven't figured that one out yet. I posted in the drivetrain section for advice but haven't had responses yet.

    Supsension is a mixture of stock and BMR upgrades. QA1's on all 4's.

    Wilwood 6-pistons in front and 4-pistons in rear racing brakes.

    Currently have C6 Z06 wheels in front and rear. 18x9.5 front and 19x10 rear with Michelen pilot sports.

    The MT's or BFGs are mainly for drag but possibly for street part time. They will go on my factory 17x9 wheels.

    I would probably go MT then. They will hook the best with the M6.
    I would say the BFG's with an A4 since they don't shock the tire as much out of the hole.


    Street duty will kill their life though.
