    Mickey Thompson Radials

    I am getting close to pulling the trigger and buying some Mickey Thompson Drag Radials. The ones I want are the P325/50R15:

    I know alot of people run the P275/R6015's but I'm adopting the "stuff as much tire under there as you can" philosophy. I know that some classes restrict the size of drag radial to 275's, but I'm not interested in racing in tire restrictive classes.

    I currently have Hoosier 29.0 x 10.5 x 15.0 and they rub, hence the reason going to 28.0's. I've never tried the drag radial and I hear people raving about them, so I might give it a shot.

    Someone give me a good reason not to buy this tire....

    I run the 275/60-15's on mine, because I think it's the largest tire I can fit. Are you sure you can squeeze a 13" tire under your car ? Regardless, you will like the radial. Start out around 19 - 21 lb of air.

    If it results in me pulling the front end 2 feet off the ground as in your avatar I am sold! LOL

    I've heard the the 325's will fit. But that's only what I've heard. I don't know this for a fact. If I can hook with the 275's then I guess there is no reason to go to the 325's. Is that the M/T radials pulling your front end off the ground?
