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?

One of our distributors has the part number in the system.By looking at the price,should be about the same as the M&H

Will these fit over the Brembos?

A little Halloween humor.
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.

Why would they engineer a 28"skinny rated to 130 knowing that some may reach speeds of 150 plus?
...I am still excited ,we have options now!

Good question. But you're right, at least it's another option now. I'm still baffled how a bias-ply tire can have a higher load rating than a radial?!?!?
