    How much power?
    Are they track only tires?
    Or for use all the time?

    I would probably go Nitto then. They will hold for you and the wear is much better. You can get 15,000 out of a Nitto DR and about 3,000 out of the MT radial.

    nittos all the way
    mine hook great... i do a full burnout untill smoke comes out... i have a m6 so i just drop the clutch at 3grand... it hooks perfect... it will bog by maybe 100 rpm if anything... no spin... just takes off.. after 13 passes they still look brand new... on the street they hold up fine except in rain.. but no dr does

    I got 4500miles on my MT et DRs (2500 and half thread left), but I agree with Luos. for the power you're making MT would be overkill.

    If you use those tires for what they were designed for, they won't go over 3K miles.

    Nitto's will last longer on the street but the Mt's will Hook better at the track.

    nope not even close... i have close to 20 passes on that... and its solid as can be... heck while trying to find my perfect rpm i have dropped it at 3500 and it was solid... but then again the car has 28k miles on it and the previous owner left it bone dry stock and probably never abused it... old dude up north, garage kept

    That's cool. I would be careful though, because it will blow! I hope I am lucky with mine until I feel I need a 9inch.

    yeah i know... i hold my breath on every pass...
    based on the theory that i never have good luck.. i can only hope this is where luck is owed to me and it holds up... untill then... the stocker will do til' i got the extra cash
