I have a old set of MT slicks that are 28 X 9 X 15. The tread section measure around 9 3/4 or more... I currently have them on a 10 inch wheel. The overall section measure around 12 inches. This is about all I can handle. I would like to get something that is comparable but can't seem to find the same thing. Do they not make this slick anymore? I am running a 79 monte Carlo that is very back end light and nose heavy(I know not ideal!). The tracks that I run at are not always preped the best but what can a guy do? I would like to put as much tread to the ground that I can but am limited on any additional space. I may be able to go up in dia but not a great deal. The other problem is I am running a 400 turbo with a 4.10 gear. And a Procharger... I'm killing the tires off of the line. Do you guys have any suggestions on what slick to run? Any help is greatly appreciated!
Thanks... Wes

Yes, that tire is still produced. It is part number 3054. I'm not sure how your tread measures that wide? A wider rim will make some difference along with prolonged use, but I've never seen that much! How much air pressure do you run?

Thanks,

Jason, They have always measured that wide. I can take a pic if you would like. I have been running them on a 8 inch rim but am now going to a 10 inch rim. Either way, do you make anything that would work for my application any better? I am concerned about the power that I am throwing at the small tire. I hope to be around 900hp at the wheels. Do you have any suggestions on something else or do you think the 28X9X15 is the direction I should go. Thanks again for your time and help... I really appreciate it!

If you can fit a 12" wide tire, the 28.0/10.5-15S (#3055S) would be a good option assuming the car weighs more than 3000 lbs. I would varify your section width measurements. If it will not fit, I would run the 28.0/9.0-15 (# 3054) with a tube.

Thanks,
