they are MT 17" slicks made for drag motorcycle application that have been used on 17" evo and suby applications.they are not streetable and are a little loose on the big end of the track because they are not really rated for the weight of our cars.I think the weight rating per tire is 450 lbs.they do work well just not real safe and quite a few of the NHRA tracks have caught on to their use and are denying passing at tech.

I am goimg to wait until somebody in a suby puts up some good 60's and 330's with the hoosiers before I decide to buy them or buy another set of BFG's.So somebody needs to get busy with these as soon as spring gets here so we have some info.

I know....I'm just messing with ya.

I hate EvoM.....it's a bunch of "know it alls" with absolutely no experience. I may not have a lot of Evo specific knowledge, but look at the threads on here I've made regarding the various products I've tested and things I've figured out for the STI and I think I've more than proven myself as a knowledgeable person.

Getting back to these tires....I'm all for them working....I've even told Indy and 9sec9 multiple times I'll stick my foot in my mouth and quietly bow out when they go 1.4's. But I'm not talking about PR 1.4's, I'm talking Joe Schmoe 1.4's. PR can make donut tires go 1.4!!

I just find it funny that they call these a DRAG RADIAL that has had a best of a 1.51 60ft but you can't drive them on the street. F*** that, buy a set of BFG drag radials, go low 1.5's and still be able to drive them on the street.

They are a full blown slick with a DOT stamp of approval, nothing more, nothing less yet they continually try to compare them against DR's. No, you need to compare them against Hoosier QTP's and Mickey Thompson ET Streets, which will kick the crap out of the Hoosier DR.

I agree with Slorice, Im all for these working but so far Im not seing conclusive evidence that average people can make them work.

Has anyone noticed they look exactly like the Hoosier A6's. The rounded edge seems like its a mold from a track tire.

I bought a set of them (A6's) back in Aug of 08. Thinking I had the trick set up. I tried them a few different days at the track and all they did was pick up pebbles and they were embeded into the tire so far you had to pick them out with a knife. My best 60 foot was a 1.71 with the A6's

Has anyone had a similer experience with these Hoosiers at the track?

I agree with you Tim(slorice) until someone cuts some 1.4's with them I don't think they are worth the hype.

Hype is all it is, if I can get solid 1.60's (11.2/127) most of the day on a stock clutch/ motor/6 speed/cal speedway (bad time track/ 4ft up slope)full weight sti/ street tires on 18's w -3.25f/-2.0 r camber/no launch control, anything worth talking this much about better run 1.3-1.4 for the shmoes like myself, did I mention this was my second time ever launching & 1st time ever to 1/4

These look just like my hoosier r6's too

LOL lucky, why do people think launching with LC makes launching a cake? Up hill can add traction.

A 1.3 60' will not happen with this tires even if you are rolly.

I agree, they are not some magical bad ass slick that will net slick 60' times. They are not tall enough first off and they are a DOT tire. You can expect 1.5's if you know what your doing and 1.4's if you really try and the track is good.

They are quite a bit more proven over on evom but there are a few guys on here that swear by them and the consistent good
60 times . They perform like a Hoosier tire but in 17", wasn't that the point?

They seem to have mixed results but I think its all driver error or inexperience. These require different pressures and launch technique. I'd like to try them out but looking at some better cheaper options.

I already went 1.52 60-ft with bfg drag radials spinning all through first gear. I'd hope these tires would push me to the high 1.4's or better.

Jay, they will get you 1.4s all day. I cut a 1.48 on my first pass with them. No testing tire pressure, no adjusting 2step.. Just one pass and they hooked great. They are lighter, and taller then the BFG which benefit more then you can imagine all by itself. Even a mid 1.5 with a lighter and taller tire ( with your old style 6spd ) will get a better trap and et.
Not to mention they are a better compound and have more side wall then the BFG.

The whole point of the tire was to give a 17" option that worked better then the other 17s out. That was accomplished.

Can't believe this thread faded away. I want a tire that will let me trap over 135 in 4th so this is my only option in a 17 in rim. Any recent experience on them? Did the war wagon test them?
