Default M/T vs. BFG

Hello all, I know I havent been around for a while because I have been working a lot! I am saving for a few things, one being Stage 3 Ported Edelbrock performer heads, and the other being Drag radials. I have been riding in and driving my brothers 88 GT and he just got a set of BFG Drag Radials, and they are awesome! They have great traction, and look really good too.. I was just wondering if anyone would recommend the M/T Drag Radials over the BFG? I have heard that they are both the fastest radials blah blah, but am wondering what you would recommend. Thanks..

well both are great tires and both wear down fast, a friend of mine has the new MT's on his 03 cobra with a kb and stock irs and was launching at 6k at the track the other day, to give you a perspective

Since your brother already has the BFGs, and you know how they act, why not go M/T and see how those go? This way in 10K (give or take) miles when you're buying another set of new tires you'll be able to form a much more personal and informed decision.

I got the BFGs and they wont go anywhere near 10K miles and I have not been really hard on them. My will be gone by 5K so Im going to try something else next time. I have heard good things about the nitto drags.

i have MT 28 X 10.5 (i think that is the right order). They are awesome tires, but they have very soft sidewalls. I dont use them everyday but if i did i would have to check the air everyday before i took off. You can tell when they get low. Your rear end will feel like it is sliding all over the place for no reason. Of course these may not be the same tires you are looking at. And yes they wear out extremely fast. I think they are the Sportsman series.
