Goodyear Drag Radials

Anyone using them at the strip with success? Also, how do they handle on the street?

Just south of you in Oregon, I run Goodyear radials, but strictly in drag race form, and absolutely love the tires. Just to be clear, I am not running any Goodyear street/strip radial, but the dedicated drag race 30 inch radials. On the street, I run your basic Les Schwab 29 inch Toyo radials. On the strip, the Goodyears run 1..50 60 ft in my 3,100 pound (with driver) street/strip (mostly street) 20 A Tudor sedan. For comparison's sake, I ran BFG street/strip radials on the same car, with no changes in setup, and ran best of 1.8o 60 ft, with a lot of "sideways" all the way to third gear on the TH 350. The BFGs were, in short, worthless as a street/strip tire. As one who drives to the strip, then swaps tires to race, a truly excellent street/strip dual-purpose tire would be wonderful. As a senior citizen, I would love being able to drive to the track, then run 10s on my street tire. Until I find an honest street/strip slick, and I am now 64 and counting, I will continue to drive on street radials, then swap to dedicated drag radials at the track. Again, the BFGS were useless, unless one wants rubber vegetable planters.
