McCormack just gave me what I thought was a pretty good deal on these $219 ea. (shipped), so I made the commitment!!! Guess I'm going to try these things out!!!
Racer's discount. Free shipping, too

Update on these: Mine are scheduled to ship today. Little early XMas surprise, they've been backordered for a good while. I'll take some detailed measurements when they get here.

Jegs or Summit or both over discounts to racers who have their NHRA license (10.00 and quicker).

I'd like to see how much the skinnies weigh with these tires.

Questions:

1. Any safety concerns trapping above 130?
2. Will it pass tech to 10.00 or faster? (NMCA/LSX events)

I would be concerned with that tires load rating. Especially the weight of a 5th gen front end with a blower. If it's H rated then it's rated for 130mph of CONSTANT speed. I don't think getting up to a very short burst of 140mph is going to affect it. I have seen guys with Radial T/A's go 120mph plus at the drag strip multiple times and never have a problem. I think the Radial T/A's are only rated for 108mph. Its the load rating at those speeds that I would worry about on this new tire.

Thanks for the comment. I've seen guys with big HP race with GTO Spares, with the stock spare tire!

But I'd like to do it once, right. My GTO was ghetto, my Camaro... less so.

Like I said its the weight rating I would be worried about. Our front end with driver has got to be over 2050lbs.

Not that I know of. I've had mine on order for about a month now!!! I was told they would be "released" sometime in January….so, I guess we'll see.

These got pushed back to Mid Feb at the earliest (fourth date I've gotten now) so I just ordered a second set of M&H fronts since I'm sick of waiting. Maybe the boat from china got lost. I'll order these again when they physically show up

Hmmmm, that's not good news. I can wait until the end of Feb, but if they're not delivered by then, I will cancel and go with the M&H too!!!
