Did a little research, they are bias ply. I just might have to buy a set and try them out next season.

So can we run that tire with our stock front tires?
From what I've heard you should not run bias ply rears with radials on the front.
I'm not exactly sure how it affects the handling of the car?????

Do you think if I ran bias blys slicks on my rear 17 inch rims and skinny radials up front on my 18 inch rims I will be okay at the strip? 1/4 mile btw

don't matter rim size..tire height is key...too much front/back freaks out the ABS and have to pull fuses...I have a 18" rear and looks like I may have to run a 17" skinny up front but will make sure the dia is 28" like the rears are...I personally don't like pullin fuses.

btw - this being a bias a tube is needed correct? therefore peeps can use rim screws to stop the slip....can't do that on radials...peace out

From what I've read on other forums no tube is needed. But if someone could verify that would be great

Usually you don't need a tube with a slick but, I do like running tubes on a heavy cars or fast stuff. It can help the sidewall a bit. On a 4000 lb tank like a Camaro it would be a good idea.
