    M/T drag radial life

    I run 295x45x17 Mickey Thompson drag radials and last set I had on car got wear. I got 7,411 miles with 39 passes at drag strip and were down to wear bar and sold for them for $100. So I would say that was good life on those tires!

    Never really had any issues. I drove in rain was not to bad but didnt drive fast. I also tried not to get caught in the rain.
    1.61 best 60 ft N/A mostly middle to low 1.60s. Hooked 99% of time so would be a killer bracket car with those tires. But my tires are taller than ur though.
