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?

Get some wheelie bars and hit the nitrous at 120 and pic them skinnies right up off the ground.

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?!?!?

Its designed differently... don't read into it, too much. The 8 ply bias tire is about twice as thick as the radial in the sidewall.

Well, if anyone is interested, Summit Racing sent me a e-mail this morning and said they can get them, but it would have to be a "Special Order" (have to call them to order). Pricing is $253.99 each. And according to M/T, they are in-stock ready to go.

Personally, I think I'll probably just stick with the M&H bias-ply. Higher load rating and cheaper!

Now that I have seen the price and the weight I think I will go with a TSW Nurburgrig 18" set up. A 18 x 8 TSW wheel with a 225/60R18 GY Eagle sport all season is 44lbs together and cost about $380 together. It would also have a higher load rating and be good to 149mph.(I have to drive an hour to the track so this is good for me) The MT radial tire on a Weld Wheel would weigh about 38lbs and cost about $680 together. Start multiplying that by 2 and adding in what the rear wheels and tires cost and WOW!
