    Ran this season and last with MT "Bubba" 3190 tire, looking to replace them this winter. Opinions on either tire?

    2800 (class rules) door car, Fuel headed hemi, C rotor 129 over, 1.40 first on two speed 400....... Working on gear ratio for the 1/8, now 4.29, car is lugging a bit.

    Tires

    Hi,

    Things may have changed since then but a few years ago a friend of mine was sponsored by MT and had a brand new set on the car, after he made his first run he came back and the tires had cups missing out of them. He put on a set of old Hoosiers and set the world record for that time on a modern roots blown dragster, I believe its still the 1/4 mile record.

    If that's not enough Frank "Superman" Manzo used them....enough said...lol

    Best wishes,
    Trevor Sherwood
