How many passes are you guys getting on a drag radial (like 275's to 325's, 28" tall)? Do the sidewalls give up like a slick? I want to try some on my car, just looking for some info.

Depends on how hard your hitting them and what tire is it. A reg m/t has a thicker sidewall then the hoosier, and the m/t 275x is thinner then that. 60 foot times ang weights will play into it also. The top guys going 4.60-4.70 get about 15. 10 second car could last 150.

With a glide and a brake I have cut mid 1.20's with 28x10.5 MT slicks. I currently dont have a glide in it, but plan on repairing it before too long and putting it back in.

On our Chevelle with 17 lbs even on the street these tires worked great.The sidewalls will wrinkle quite a bit, they were unbelieveably stable on the road.The launches were just what I hoped for only problem was they pickup every grain of sand and the rear quarters take a beating.Never ran them enough to wear them out.

Dang! I was just in Chesapeake last week on business and I'm needing some new tires....Looks like a pretty good deal. What would it cost to ship them to 27106?
