BFG Drag Radial

Not only do they preform well as both a street tire, and a semi sticky at the track, they also look damn good.

I've had good luck with the BFG's but I know a lot of people that swear by the new M/T drag radials. The next drag radial I buy will be the M/T's.

for cost ....

The MT are the best buy for the buck in my book. I've run Hoosers too but the cost is better on the MT.

None of the above

They are illegal in Canada.

Really Bracketeer? I thought that with drag radials using D.O.T. casings, they would be as legal as any other DOT tire! I remember one of the magazines doing a drag radial shootout maybe a year ago? You might be able to find the information searching the web! There are probably some new tires on the market since that article though!

This article compares Nitto's to BFG's www.superchevy-web.com/tech/0302SC_Sticky

wrong answer

I think I got confused with the street slick. It has no tread but is US DOT legal. It is considered a bald tire in Canada, brand new out of the box.
