The talk Dad and I have been hearing is the BFG's are junk. Dad has been going back and forth between the Mickey's and Hoosier's, he can't decide which he likes better.

I got some Hoosier ET Street Radials this summer. Super sticky. Much softer than the BFG's I've seen. Funny thing is, they work better without a burnout.

Looks like I got my brands mixed up. They're Mickey Thompson ET Street Radials. http://www.mickeythompsontires.com/s...ETStreetRadial

They seem to drive just like my old 275/60/15 radial tires did. My local track is about an hour away. Drove there, raced, drove home. No problems.

I'm running 255/60/15's which are the same diameter and width as my 255/50/17 road tires. They also have a 255/50/16 which will work with your 16x7 wheels.
