    at what psi do u set urs at????
    we usually set the mickey drag radials at 10, did a nice burnout and it would spin a little in first but it would grip in second. none of us have used this et streets and im wondering whats the best psi to set them at. on the pics theyre set at 12, it spin a little in 1st but grips HARD all the way through, thats without heating them up.they wobble a lot u can feel the whole back end move a lot.the car feels unstable so i would ONLY recommend this tires for racing.

    If I drive to town with them.. I have them mid 20s... and dont get crazy in the twisties...



    I aired em down to about 17 last night.. heated em up and launched at 2500 rpms.... spun a little bit but I did have traction in first....

    I bet if I aired em down to around 9.. heat em up... I can launch higher and have very little spin action. :hitit:

    It's probably important to remember that ET Streets are nothing like drag radials, so don't treat them like drag radials.

    ET Streets are soft sidewall, slick compound tires with grooves cut in them to pass DOT regulations. They have no radial construction, they are wrinkle wall drag tires, and that's it. The were developed for the early onslaught of "Street Legal" drag racing that started in the early '90's to be used as "Street Legal" tires so that guys could have a better choice than just big radials. They are just slicks with grooves in them.

    What size are you running?

    How do these feel at higher speeds on the track?

    I had mine on at 25 psi.. 26x11.5x17....

    At 60 its fine on the highway.... 100 was fine... its all good.... just taking SHARP corners fast would probably be a bad idea.
