Thanks for the quick reply...I didn't know the 275's were that close. How much bigger would the 325/50 Hoosiers be compared to the 10.5 slick, about 2in?

Getting ready to buy some tires this weekend for SGMP race and only want to order once lol

Same height way wider, about two inches wider, go to summit or jegs, you can get the sizes on all of the tires. From what I understand, the hoosiers are more forgiving & easier to work with. If you are switching to radials for the first time & don't have alot of time to dial them in you may not want to start with M/T's. They are a great tire, but do not recover if they spin.

I've ran the MT radials for 4 years now, just always foot braking and not as much power as now...the current 275 MT's might work but I'd like to have something a lil bit wider as well, and maybe stickier too for TB launches and bad tracks

And fwiw I've always had the MT's recover well, if it spins I just let off the gas then floor it again and it hooks back up....almost to good lol, last race this past season I spun and recovered and right when it hooked it destroyed my rear end and trans lol
