    M&H, QTP's, or MT ET streets???

    I am torn between the three for drag.

    I know I will be going with one of those three. I am not sure if I will go with 26 or 27 inch tall tires though.
    26" is best for where I race, but I do expect to run off the mountain at some point, so a 27" would be best for that.

    So...any Pros/Cons for each tire welcomed. They will be getting used on ProStar 15" wheels and an M6 car.

    1. M&H Racemaster DOT
    2. Hoosier QTP's
    3. MT ET Streets

    Do you use them for the track only or do you do some street driving with them?

    I would say the M/T Drag Radials or the ET Streets. I've seen a few examples where the drag radials hooked better than the et streets.

    Not 100% yet.

    I know several that have had good luck with any of the three.

    Has anyone tried the ET Street Radial - Optimized For Modern Sports Cars & Sport Compacts ? Looking to get some, but I know I want something that I could drive there on. E/T Streets are not a radial, it says something that you shouldn't mix with a radial on the front? Any help..

    The ProStars are 15x10 with a 7.5" backspace in the rear. LOTS of caliper grinding required to fit the wheels.

    These were 275/50/15 MT ET radials...

    for whatever reason, i have always had good luck in the past with et streets, on a stick car......quick time pros on an automatic car

    with that 10" wide wheel a 26x11.50x15 (which = 26x10) you'll have a nice squared up fit

    right now, with an a4, i hook great on 275/50 et drag radials, but on a lower powered, but higher rpm launching stick car i couldn't get them to hook at all

    I ran the radials...and was able to hook at times.
    I think the suspension was some of the problem though. Dead shocks.

    Friend had good luck with the M&H's though too.

    Why not look into the Hoosier DOT DR's? From what I hear it's a pretty darn good tire...
