I need the best tire I can get in a max 28” tall tire on a 10” rim.

Both cars are 1993 Mustang Coupes... Specs below.

1. Turbo car @ 3350 lbs. “race weight” 2000 HP (+/-) depending on boost level.

2. Super Charger car @ 3150 lbs. “race weight” 1500 HP (+/-) depending on boost level.

Tires that I have tried. Hoosier 14.5 Quick Time Pro’s, Hoosier 235 Drag Radials and M/T 235 Drag Radials. I’m thinking about trying a slick but none of them are wide as the QTP’s so I’m not sure they would be any better... Thoughts?

Thanks!

I've thought about dong the 275 Pros... I've seen some amazing times with those tires. And as far a calling M/T or Hoosier, I see there are some tire reps in the section so I would think this is as good as calling them... JMHO.

You have a couple of different options, but if we are talking about "track use only", it really narrows down to the P275/60R15 ET Street Radial Pro or the 28.0/10.5-15S ET Drag. Either will work on both cars, however....

If you race on well prepped tracks and you can work with you set-up, the P275 would be the way to go.

If the tracks are tricky, and you want some consistency on those surfaces, the 28.0/10.5-15S (part # 3055S) would be the way to go.

Or you could have a set of both and try them on each car! :):p

I hope this helps,

Thanks,

Thanks! I'll give both a try. We have one good prep and one shitty prep track around here so it will be a good experiment. :)

Sorry to thread-jack, but Jason, what would you recommend if it had to be DOT?

Thanks

If it had to be DOT for track use/rules only - I'd go with the 3754X, P275/60R15 ET Street Radial Pro.

For limited (read "dry") street use, I'd go with the P275/60R15, or P295/55R15 (automatic), or 28X12.50R15LT ET Street (clutch).

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Do you guys think that using the tubes is that necessary with a 30551? What is going to be the difference?
