anyone done this?
pluses or minuses
I know it will reduce rear end ratio but should give a little more mph.
Better/bigger footprint for traction ?

I run radial slicks with the 94" rollout. They are a solid .035 faster then slicks.

The Mickey's are faster but the Hoosiers last a hell of a lot longer. I switched to a Radial slick in 2007 and will never go back. Ended up putting the 9" on a 10" rim when I mini tubbed the car, spreads out the contact patch and actually made it a little more consistent with the extra HP I made with the new engine. Good luck and take the time to test to find the sweet spot.

thanks for the replies . I know the radial will be faster - the 275 is a radial , never run a rag slick before.
it was more a question of will the 30x9 be an improvement ?
looks like money and testing :)
thanks again
