Why not MT's? That is what I use and really like them. I have no experience with the Toyo's.

Wow, .15 loss thats terrible. I did try some hoosiers a few years back, ran smooth picked up .05 but didn't last very long. They do have a killer deal right now buy one get one free.

BFG

In another post their is some information that the BFG DOT tires are hard and I have been told by several others who run them say they need to be worn down before they work.

Iwill find out because I bought a set to try. I also am looking at a set of Goodyears in a drag only tire.
