Mickey Thompson ET Street

Anyone here with experience with perf. tires can help me. I have a serious traction problem, I'm running H rated four seasons (came with the car), I want traction, without going all the way to slicks, I'm scared that my rear end won't take it (7.5 10bolt GM) All I want to know is how much to these tires grip and maybe if some of you have suggestions, something that worked for you. Thanks

From all reports, these are the best biting drag radials out there. I don't know what kind of power you're making but I'd start planning on a better rear end.

I ran that same size once on my 440 Challenger and I couldnt get them to stick. I had to use a 255/50R15 to get any real bite. But I'm using a Chrysler 8-3/4 rear which is pretty tough.
I dont have much experience wit the 10 bolt rear. But if it is 7.5" you might want to watch how much poer you put through it. Are you running a 427? too much.
