28" SKINNY RADIALS NOW AVAILABLE!!!

Mickey Thompson has just released a 28X6.00R17LT RADIAL skinny!!! Finally!!! A perfect match for those running 17" Drag Radials in the rear!!!

We all heard the rumors these were "in the works", and now it's on their website. Haven't done a price search yet....but hopefully they're affordable.

Yes! Prior to this release, the only 28" tall "skinny" tire was the M&H 4.5/28-17 Bias-Ply front runner. Now at least there is an option to run radials all the way around!!! But they're so new right now, nobody has pricing on them yet.

Well, according to the M/T website, these are designed for 4.0 - 5.0 rims, so they're perfect for the 17x5 Weld RT-S or Bogart wheels.

Very cool! Jason Moulton from M/T had posted on the YB that they were going to release something in the near future.

Yeah Tim, they will in all likelihood be heavier.

I've run 15" skinnies both bias ply and radials, and the latter drive much better on the street. I had Moroso DS2's that were super light but were super smooth.

Maybe I'll start commuting on skinnies again.

This car lived on skinnies, and I even drove it to Bristol TN on skinnies in 2000:

Yeah, at least these new 28" radials would make it a little bit more practical to run a fatty/skinny set-up on the street. I just gotta sell my CF10's first!!!

According to a response back from Shaun (Tech Rep at Mickey Thompson), these new skinnies are load rated at 1,025 lbs. per tire. Don't you think our cars would exceed that? Just asking!!!

Anyway, he said they "ARE AVAILABLE", but I would have to go through Jegs or Summit to get pricing information. Working on that now.

Edit: Got the "run-around" from Jegs. They claim they aren't going to be available until "Early 2014 Sometime", while Shaun (from M/T) insists they are "in-stock" ready to go!!! And Jeg's says they don't have pricing established either yet!!! Still waiting to hear back from Summit....probably tomorrow.

Also, according to M/T, max PSI is 50. He said if you are close to the max load capacity, then use 50, but adjust accordingly!

Well here's some interesting info I was able to dig up while researching this new tire.

Mickey Thompson 28x6.00R17LT Sportsman S/R:
Weight: Approx. 22 lbs.
Load Rating: 1025 lbs. at 50 psi

M&H 4.5/28-17 Bias-Ply Front Runner:
Weight: Approx. 17 lbs.
Load Rating: 1325 lbs. at 35 psi

So the M&H Bias-Ply has a higher load rating than the radial M/T????....I certainly did not expect that!!! And I suppose 5 lbs. of added weight per tire is about right. Hmmm, what to do....what to do?

Will these fit over the Brembos?

Tim, I hit the nitrous and my car blows up!!

I want drag radials on the back but may need to stick with the bias up front.
