Thanks for the feedback

Anyway you could post a pic of what they look like on the car. I'd love to see them in the wheel well.

Those look like some nice tires. Wonder if they would fit ok on my RX-7. Does anyone have them mounted on an 8" rim? Hows the fit?

I ran them this whole season and love em'. If you have 16" wheels it is really the only choice since I wanted a taller tire and MT only makes 26"...
Had my best 1/4 mile and 60 foot this year. I will get them again.


PS - They make some great T-Shirts as well....

Mike - I am using the GTA wheels and I am 90% sure they are 8 "....

Very street'able, although I have not been caught in the rain yet. They are drag radials...27"tall.

The last two times out (Cecil & Atco) I drove 120 & 110 miles round trip, as I did not want to bother with my trailer. Car rides real well with them. Unless you forget to fill them back up for the ride home, like I did the last time out.
Then she was a little squirrely...

Ah yes..I stand corrected. They are 28" tall, which helped me this year, improve my mph at the finish line...

Personally, I prefer them over the MT's mostly because I could get a taller profile tire, but also because I did improve my 60'..That said, I have seen some impressive 60' on the MT's, just could not get me to produce the same results.

User error I am sure.
