Re: Street Tires for GO



Tires do have a rating system on them which is a number and then two letters. Such as 500 A B. The number is the wear life and the higher the number the longer the treadwear. The letters are for traction and temperature. Of course A USD the best tasting and I don't think they go below C? I gotta think that the longer wear rated tires have the hardest rubber compound and are great for gas mileage and long tire life but not so good for our traction requirements.

Isn't there a number on the tire indicating tread wear, which correlates to tire softness/hardness?  If you're thinking about running the car at the Pacific Jct. dragstrip you're going to need all the traction you can get.  All I know is that trying to get any traction with my car is hopeless.  It just spins the tires all the way through 1st gear regardless of the rear end ratio I'm running.  So I've given up as I'm not prepared to spend the $$ for slicks not to mention the wear and tear.

I'm thinking under $300 for the pair of larger 15" tires.  anything better than BFG Radial T/A or Cooper Cobra?  I would like your opinions.............................MO
