Post Nitto Drags 555
Nitto Drags 555 205/50/14.

Why? 100 Threadwear, the more they wear the stickier they get.

Did anyone say drag tires street legal, so no problem with the cops.

Warm them up, clutch in and then no mercy to the synchros, LOL

I have heard the nittos are okay, but nothing compared to a real drag slick.


I used a pair of michelin pilot road race slicks. better than street tires but def. no drag slick

Im currently looking at some 24.5x8.5x15 M&H drag slicks for next year

i use Mickey Thompson 26x14x8.5 Full drag slicks. They do very well holding down the power of my MX-3 coming off the line on a 75 shot at 5500 RPMS. :shock:

Anyone with the M&H tires have any updates to how they performed? What wheel are you using (width)
