Drag Radials???

I'm looking to get some drag radial to put on my stock 18'' rims. I'm looking to get either the Yokahama's or the Perelli's and the sizes vary a bit that largest of the Pzero's are 335/30R18 and the Yokahama's are 315/30R18. They both seem to be decent tires but can someone give me a thorough explanation of what those sizing numbers mean and whether they will fit on my stock rims.

thanks!

What gear ratio is your truck? Also, are you going to be running in the 1/8th or the 1/4 mile?

Pzeros or yoks thoes are not drag radials thoes are high performance street tires if you want DRs I like mickey thompson.
If you are going street tire then nothing beats the P-zero. (it has to be just P-zero, no other names after that) I will warn you thet cost alot of cash and will wear very fast.

Hmmm... they were both listed as drag radials..Im kinda going toward the yoks because they dont have near the cost of the P-zeros. Im going to be running both 1/8 and 1/4 passes with these..I will look into those Mickey T's. The truck is a 3:73.

You will need a decent size tire to be effective in the 1/4 mile, like a 33" atleast. Why not just get some Toyo Proxes? That is what Rudy runs on his drag truck....they seem to be working pretty well. They are also VERY cheap.

Nope P-zero is a low profile high performance street tire.
A DR needs side wall to flex on your launch so you dont have tire spin. check the MT website I am sure you can find somewhere on there may other reasons. Now you cant drive with a real DR on the street you cant take corners and stuff. so if you want a true track only DR MTs are the way to go.
