How wide are your new 17" Bogarts? Those 390 tires should require an 11" wheel minimum!!!

What would you do with them? You don't make enough power to spin them.

That would mean I would have traction. So you would have to try to catch me

What is the realized gains/goal? NOT bashing-I'm learning. Was originally going to buy m&h 325 DR.

From what I see-original vs new setup:
Original vs taller tire -doesn't seem desirable unless better match to gear.
Slick vs treads -DR less surface contact from tread grooves.
Slick vs DR -traditionally thinner sidewall and wrinkle wind up on slick-more energy store and surface contact patch.
Original side wall is about the same as new due to 16-17 rim change.
Original rim should weigh less.
I would think the slick weighs considerably less. Once the tread wears down, they'll be dlicks soon enough-seems slicks would last longer.
Assuming no fitment issues for taller and little wider tire.
Traditional tall front wheel/tires should not post a ABS light-ok
Don't know which tire is stickier compound.

You should run them in paired track tests to see effects and post back on those monsters.

Love our RR10s-great company.

Congrats.

Newbie padawon here.
Car is now a high 8 second car. Slicks for the track, radials for the car shows!! Soon enough he will have a 15" set up on there.

I can see that-I was going to do the same-325 DR on second Bogart set for shows (stockers and window race stickers dont mesh) and for True Street race ( have to slow down 0.5s anyways)-legal tires.

The slick looked like yours Jamie -Qtp? with the grooves-thought they were Dot legal.

Since 8 sec car-would think my comments are more important to review-right or wrong ( I don't claim to know much).
I know there's other threads out there on the subject-was hoping to have me/us get more guidance. Never know when someone might want to build a 8sec beast.
Same rears that I run. He has 2 sets of rears and then the matching skinnies. I can't imagine Ted wanting him to run the drag radials on the track but you never know.

I like the 325 M & H tire.
