    does anyone practice this or is this just an assumption?
    Most likely I will stick with the ET streets, but was curious to try those radials since I heard they were real sticky.

    We have ran them BOTH ways for years......... Radial VW Metric radials on the front and Bias Ply ET Streets on the rear.
    Bias Ply front runners and ET Drag Radials on the rear.

    It all depends on what your purpose is...... Are you trying to get the best et or trying to hang corners and worry about the car following grooves.

    I can tell you first hand if the car doesn't like to go straight or it's a heavy car you will hook better with the drag radials.
    I'm doing 1.28 60 fts. ALL day on a small 275/60/15 with a 8" rim. Could only get 1.32's on ET Streets and it was all over the place on the big end. Night and day difference. If you would of told me that kind of # on a drag radial 1 1/2 ago I would of told you to set the pipe down and walk away.
    Tires have changed vastly in the recent year. There are cars running 7 second et's on a drag radial now.
