We offer our Sportsman S/R that works great with the ET Street Radials. We have a 24X5.00, 26X6.00 and 26X8.00 in 15 and 18" rim diameters.

Thanks,

Jason Moulton

It was cool to see Dan start the year so strong. Has he started adding divisional races yet?

I know its been a couple years since I've raced but wonder about this question.

What is the optimal temp the tire should be compared to the track surface on 33x10.5w M/T tires? Does this depend on different tracks, temps, weight or any other variable? or is there a set temp to shoot for

Yes - Dan Fletcher is awsome!
We are very proud to have him as a Team M/T member.

I'm sure he will adjust his schedule to maximize his championship chase.

Thanks Kyle!

Good question Monte. The rule of thumb is typically within 10 degrees of the track temp. With that being said, as ambient temps go up, the burnouts can get shorter. This is due to the ambient tire temp already being warmer. On the flip side, as the tracks get cooler, the burnouts can get longer.

Hope this helps.

Hey guys thanks for stopping at the Bullet. My question is about air pressure in the drag radials.........do you think there will be much difference in the pressure from my 325s to the 275s I will be running a bunch this year? Have you seen a trend one way or another?

Im getting ready to head to the dyno. I was wondering how much my tire's will grow at say 150-160MPH? There 28x10.5 on a 10" wheel. I just wanted to see if i need to trim the wheel wells any more i have about 3/4" clearance right now.

Thanks
Brandon

How about a 31x13.5x15 ET Street?? Hoosier has 'em, but I don't really wanna run Hoosiers for my class tire size.
