drag radial 27"
drag radial 28"
drag radial 29"
There is a possibility of a new Hoosier tire coming.With all the new gear options what size would you like to see?These will be on a 17" rim.Would you prefer a slick or a drag radial?Would you commit to the tire size you choose if it becomes a reality?Remember before voting to consider if you race in a street tire class or not.

so i guess a 23" tire 18" wide is out of the question
Great topic erik, i suspect with all the taller gears out now we'll get some serious interest on 28-30"

I would definitely prefer a slick. I have their drag radials now and they hook great, but they don't last very long. A slick would last a little longer. Either 27 or 28 inches would work for me.

This is serious guys......one of the vendors will be able to get a run made if there is enough serious interest.So if you want them make sure you post up and vote.
what kind of rim width are we talking here?
i voted 27 drag radial because with a 323 its the best size for most 5.7 cars
yea yea, i know the 3.23 story.. but the 3.55 still just doesnt cut it even with a 29" tire... so one day

28in in either slick or drag radial on 17in rim sounds like good all around size to me.

I like 27" radial as with 3.06 gears I'll not be shifting into 4th just before the line.
As to radial or slick, well I've only run the radial so I'm not really sure of the performance difference.
At my experience level, I want something that is reasonably stable at the big end of the track.

Good post, I have a questoins for you guys, A slick or a DR. What is the main difference? I have heard that with a slick its easyer on the rear end stuff. more sidewall flex, is this true? Not to thread jack so sorry if I am, I was looking at the MT ET Streets non radial.
Also to add to my post, I do LOVE the Hoosier. I would go with a 26"
