I have p275/60 r15 on 10" rims in the rear and 215/70 r15 on 8 inch rims in the front BF Goodrich tires. Car is a 34 ford replica w 502 BBC crate motor with a 6 speed Tremec manual trans. Street and highway use. I'm looking for sticky, high speed rated tires and not finding a lot of options. Micky Thompson and Nitto are available name brands. Looking for recommendations or feedback from the guys using Nitto or MT

I just went 12.7s in a 4000 pound truck with NT555s. 275 60 15 on a 8.5 inch rim.
Drove around the water. No burnout, just a dry hop. 1.8 60ft. As far as I could tell, no spinning.
My last set lasted 2 years and about 4000 miles. But 1600 of those miles were nonstop from Texas to North Carolina nonstop, loaded down, with no problems.
I just bought another set, but you might need the Mickeys, at your power level.
BTW the Nittos work good on the street. If they do spin, they don't make a bunch of noise like street tires...

I had M&H Racemaster DRs on both my rods, nice tire. IIRC, you're in FL? Just be aware most sticky tires are allergic to rain...

Thanks for the input, I have heard good things about the Nitto's , but if your not doing burnouts I would think you should get more than 4000 miles on them. They must have a soft compound.
