Default 29” Drag radial

Any future plans for a 295/60/15 drag radial or ET Street?

yep , I would run a true 29" if I could get one . I am going to try the Hoosier 29.5x10.5 . The PBR is 30" , 295/65s are all 30"+

Kinda? The 295/65 is like 30.25, That's pretty big for my car's fender, A 60 series would be better, but they don't make them, I don't know how good the hoosier drag radials are? I've only ran the Mt's
I'll prob just stick with the 275, don't like the look of a 295/65 on my car

SBP , the difference can be enough to fit or not fit .
With the mt 295/65 et ss tyre rolled into dogleg through/after finish traps . I moved diff back 1/4"to fit the PBR 29.5x10.5 .
I did buy and try the Hoosier last Friday night . A lot more room . The main difference with these , apart from being 29.5 tall , is I am using a lot more tyre psi . Was up to 22psi from 19 1/4 . After seeing pics I may be able to go to 23 , was still a lot of sidewall wrinkle . hey also have a squarer shoulder .

I get what your saying, but the previous owner tried the 295/65 when he owned it and it caught the drivers rear quarter turning onto return road putting a crease in quarter. I would rather not do that again lol
