I've heard everything from 8 passes to 50 passes. I've heard some radials don't last long at all either. Just curious. I run 28x10.5 or 28x10.5w, stock suspension Mustang.
Billy is a hell of a racer, but I think sometimes he's fibbin' a littleIt all depends on HP level and burnout style. I have only purchased 28X10.5 tires new once. I usualy try to buy them used from SSO guys. And the used give me the same 60FT times as the new ones I purchased. I talked with Billy Glidden at WFC when he had Bob Glidden there driving the black Stang in SSO. Billy told me he was useing an old set of Kenny Comptons tires off his HS car. And they 50 passes on them and still worked as good as new. Well Bob lost to Dan Millen in the final. Bob had the front wheels off the ground past 300ft mark and had to lift because the car started to the center line.
Well maybe I dont know. I do know this the first set a purchased came off Keith Szabo's car and he said they had about 25 passes on them. I put them on my car and it gave me the best 60ft time I had at that time. The next set I purchased brand new and my 60FT did not improve.Billy is a hell of a racer, but I think sometimes he's fibbin' a little
I use 11.5x28 QTPs for DOT races and those things do last forever.We run 28-11.50 15 Hoosier QTP and get about 120-130 passes before we think about new. All 1/8th mile.
