I have 17 inch M/t drag radials that are FANTASTIC !
Is there anyone that makes an 18inch drag radials as good as M/T
That way I don't have to keep switching tires

BFG makes a good drag radial... but not as good for traction as the MTs, IMO
I agree, though from what I read the BFG's seem to be more DD friendly. I'm happy with the BFG's for DD, though I'll probably get some MT's for the track.

You do DD with BFG drag radials? How many miles do you have on them? How many more miles do you plan to go with that pair?

I do, albeit, I dont drive very far.

There are approximately 2K miles on my BFG DR's.

They are pretty much wasted. Plan on a new set next month. Will put on the street rim/tires since the weather is turning.

I would like to know how the Hoosiers are.
they are ok better than nittos close to MT's

my next set is QUICK Time Pro but they are bias, and they get a bad name on this site because people cant drive:madsign3: they think they can take corners like street tires

I have MT 17s and but use BFG 18s for as my driving tire. I have taken both to the track.

THe MT 17s are at least a tenth better 60 foot. The BFG 18s are much more drivable in handling.

fwiw, my M/T drag radials in 275/50/15 size weighed 9 lbs EACH more than my BFG drag radials in the same size! For me, I was trying to get the weight down on the car, especially rotating weight. I ran these tires on the T/A's...

For my goat, that's why I chose the BFG 235/60/15 drag radials. If you can hook with the BFG, I would opt for that. But I do agree with the others that the M/T's hook better. I could drive the M/T's on the street and get them to hook in my stalled LT1.

I use the Nitto drags, not quite as grippy as the above mentioned, but will last 10,000 miles of street and mild strip use.
