Exclamation Micky T Tires

What micky T tires would be the best for my Camaro SS with the stock 20"rims?

Get a set of drag radials. I run Nitto 555r 305 35 20 on stock rims. The Mickeys are a bit better at the track.....but the Nittos wear alot longer. Plus the look great.

But dont I need street ones because drag radials aren't legal on roads?

They Are legal but I wouldn't recommend for a DD. My first time caught in rain on home from track ended up with me driving 35mph down some side roads.

Now Ive read this numerous times. I have a stalled ...geared auto with drs. Was caught many times last summer and had zero issues...this must be a Mickey Thompson thing. .

I daily Mickey Thompson Street Comps. Great tire so far. Hook up reasonably well and do fine in the rain. Treadwear is normal for a 300 tire. Mid-range price point is pretty good too.

I wanted to get MT tires to match the MT wheels, but couldn't justify the additional $50 per tire for the brand, so I got Falken Pro G4 A/S tires. I immediately noticed the smoother ride & the grip in wet conditions instills more confidence than the OEM summer tires.

Not saying I. Right and you're wrong. In Florida where I had my NT05s on it sucked in the rain. But when it rained it came down hard
