What kinda mileage are you wanting to get out of the tires? The problem I have is that I have 3. I think the car rides rough with the air bags or maybe its because I have the original shocks still on it. I put kuhmo's on there and had 36k on those when I traded it off. They also have less rolling resistance than bias-ply tires. My problem with the air bags I got is one day I took the car out and the tires rubbed. Just feels stiff especially when I hit bumps.
Seems like they were stopped being made around 2012-2013 but why? That grip comes at a cost of lifespan. This brings the special compounds to the surface, increasing the stickiness of the tire. You were with us when my bfgs did their job at the track on my car hahaha. Plus, they have a tendency to sway because there's no steel belts inside of them. And so we spent the rest of the day enjoying the action from the bleachers.
Chat with others, create a build thread, post questions and answers. Guess I'll have to do more research before switching my combo. I believe I have the draglites 15x8 with the 3. Bias Ply Roll Out Measurement Bias ply tires are made with nylon cords that criss-cross each other. While you may miss out on the big nasty smoke show, you are saving the life of your tires and you will go faster, which is what it is all about. Tire pressure in a drag tire is crucial for launch and traction control. This is different from the speed ratings, which measures speed.
Because of the proliferation of 17- to 20-inch wheels in motorsports, there is a need for drag tires that fit those wheels. The caveat to a drag radial is the compound. I know they are the right backspacing because I asked a couple of experts on that backspacing question. I need new tires now but I am not sure I want the 28 Inch tall tire because that is what caused my problem. The tire utilizes two very simple rain grooves designed to maximize the amount of tire on the contact patch. Logging in will also remove many of the advertisements, along with this notice. For a fully sponsored racer, tires are not an issue, but for the average Joe, a set of tires needs to last as long as possible.
Bias ply tires should be stored either off the car or with the car on jack stands with the load off the tires. A couple of times when running the taller tire on the street the tire hit the quarter panel probably when I hit some bumps. Bias ply tires are not stable enough to sit inflated with the car on them for long periods. I'll probably pick up another set of rims for the rear and throw some good drag radials on those for track use. It all depends on how often you are going to run the drag tires.
So I went to see the guy who beat me,and he said his numbers were bang on what he had been running all morning. I was messing around with a buddy on his bike on my way to work one time and he said he couldn't get close because he was getting pelted with rocks haha. The axiom is that every time you double up on the treadwear rating, the tire will last twice as long: a 400 lasts twice as long as a 200, for instance. So I tossed the keys to my son and said, why don't you try it, I don't seem to be any good at it. Of course, I have to change them when I do go to the track, but that takes all of 5 minutes with a cordless impact gun and socket. Burning Out Every manufacturer has proprietary rubber compounds. I'm talking foot through the boards 6k rpm launches on the street.
My car is an auto, 98 formula a4. Maybe a buncha more people decided that, and sales dried up. This compound has extreme energy-absorption characteristics that help the Drag Radial readily conform to the track surface to help launch the car and take it to victory. I noticed that some of the air came out of the air bags. My problem is when driving the car on the streets. I'm a big fan of kuhmo just do to my luck and the bang for the buck factor.
That balling up can actually work against you, slowing down the car in the first 60 feet. Over time, the cords shrink, reducing the rolling height of the tire. I don't see many guys in street driven Turbo Buick's cruising on the 28 Inch tires. For comparison sake, a typical street tire has a treadwear rating in the 400-600 range. The other main grade is temperature resistance. Maybe it would be different with the street prepped and a really good burnout but just normal every day 1st gear hits they would haze every gear till you lift.
