Default Hoosier or Goodyear slicks

We have been running Hoosiers on our car last 3 years, Thinking about changing to Goodyears for next year. 15x15x33 tire size.
Question is has anyone seen a benifit in ET or 60ft increases with the change.
This is a 7.80 car with 1.15 60ft. average times, best of 1.126
The Hoosiers seem to hook pretty well, but all you see in pro stock is Goodyears?
Thanks

We run Goodyear 2622 (34.5's) and been very happy with them. Different types of cars & the type of power adder seem to determine what most guys will run.

I dont know but I would think Pro Stock well all the big 3 classes have to run Good Years per NHRA rules. It keeps the class specific and even as possible.

Let me give you a hint:

Goodyear is the only company willing to assume the liability of building Nitro Fuel driven tires.
Without those two classes NHRA has NO SHOW.

Do you think NHRA would have anything to lose if Goodyear said "We have no interest in building these tires in the future"?

Hoosier dominates about everything with a converter and high hp except 10.5. M/T tried to jump into the promod/alcohol tire game with a new design and I think Goodyear got another exclusive NHRA deal hooked up to shut it down. A lot of BS politics but try to find a PX car with anything but Hoosiers.

IT Seems the new market will be the 275 tire. I still have my M/T's that work great . but hoosiers are a great tire as well....
