Mickey et street radials for the win! or just get some more mods until you really need the tires... Do you have gears yet? exhaust, nitrous let the mods begin

+1 for the mickey radials never turn back i havent ever seen nittos worth a **** unless they have done some wicked new rubber compound! They are more of a road race tire any of there line.

Slicks require enough power to stand them up on launch the sidewalls arent ridged enough to hold there form with low air pressures they require.

I usually get a yrs worth of DD riding and track visits out of my mickeys! If you feel you need a john force before the staging everytime then count on less mileage and passes!

Radials but if you are gonna do that back breaking swap then get the e.t streets.

There are radials, streets then drags.

I went that route with my srt-4.(400FWHP-Slicks) If you do change out at the track and go often like I did I recomend a $50 battery powered impact. The drag radial aren't a bad option. If you dont race often you should get 20-25k miles out of them and you'll have traction all the time on the street.

yea my wife an son ride in my car with me allot and i am not putting trust in DR's for daily use with my family on board. that's why i am going to do the swap when i go to the strip. so every one think Drag radials over the slicks with the manual trans?
