You might also look at the m&h drag radials that dave buschur helped develop,I heard Mike and the guys at awd got even better results from them then the hoosiers.You would probably have more info on them than I do JR.Also heard they are a little safer to drive on the street since the sidewall is not as squishy as the hoosiers.I hope to have a set for this year to try out so I can cut consistant mid 1.4's.

M&H is a very nice option... Honestly either one will do the trick.


I don't know about the sidewall thing though, I made a low 9@156-57mph pass in my buddies GTR with the 18" version and was stressed out.. lol They felt like a real deal slick up top haha

Since they're going on my wagon I'm going to have fitment issues I'm sure. I'm concerned about the bias ply growing under speed and also concerned about their stability. I have a set of the Hoosiers on their way. They're going on stock 2006 STi BBS wheels.

I'm kinda surprised that these tires are that unstable on the big end.

Even with those it's kinda surprising. It's not like there big sidewall 15 or 16's.

no I was referring to the hoosiers,when crystalimpreza(jeff) told me about his experience driving to the track on them and said that whenever he turned it felt like the tire was ready to roll off the rim,which made me assume the sidewall was really thin and soft like a slick.This would make them kinda unsafe to really run on the street as a daily tire.

They won't see any street use on my car.

RE the M&H DRs:
They are the real deal, high 1.5 60' without 2 step or LC on stock axles. Most forgiving DR IMO.

Got mine mounted and will need spacers as the rear is touching the strut. This is on a wagon with 5x114 bbs wheels. Fronts fit but at full lock touch the inside of the fender just a little. Probably doing a 15mm spacer.

Got mine on the wagon finally. Rolled the rears and did a slight pull too, all using the Eastwood roller and a heat gun. I needed spacers to get the inside of the tire off the strut and the body of the car. I ended up using Ichiba 15mm v2's. The tires fit, but just barely.

Fronts just clear the liner



rears at full tuck.









Track saturday!

Thanks! Yeah I need something taller.

I'm thinking of running just rear drags and matching them to my 245/45x18's. Junior said Mickey Thompson's got a tire that may work. It looks like it's the 265/40x18, 26.5" tall, 38" circumference, 9.6" tread width, 10.6" section width. They might work if I match them up with my worn Conti's 245/45x18 at 26.7" tall, 38.8 circumference new. I will need a set of rear 18x9 wheels and I'm not sure I can get this tire inside my rolled and slightly pulled rear fenders.

Hmmm? I'll have to work on this a bit!

remember going to an 18 will have a shorter sidewall thus defeating the purpose of a soft sidewall to help absorb the shock of the launch to help plant and keep planted the footprint of the tire.
