Tires?

What tires are you guys running at the track for the best 60' times? My mud tires are just not cutting it - best 60' 1.89 and thats only at around 12psi boost. I love my tires but I may need to move on to something else. A lot of the faster Dodges up here are running Toyo Open Country A/Ts and the Proxes S/Ts. Thoughts?

Best time to date: 13.75 @ 96.42MPH

Ive got to do something too, my best 60' is 1.85, but almost always run 1.95-2.00. The only bad thing ive heard about the toyos is tread life sucks. Ive heard good things about the khumos.

Is it the Proxes that wears fast? Their AT should have semi decent life. Which Khumo tire have you heard good things about?

Why don't yall get some street slicks and change them at the track. Even if only on the back, it'd probably help. And they may last a little longer than regular slicks.

well the reson the toyo proxes wear out fast is due to the soft rubber but then again they hook better,but the toyoy A/T's wear real good for being a A/T tire..i would go with a good A/T tire and be done with it like the Bridgestone Dueller A/T Revo and a 1/2 hour before the event add some bleach to the drive tires and that will help soften the tires a little more..

Thanks for the responses. What about the Nitto Terra Grapplers? Looks like almost identical tread pattern to the Open Country AT but a good chunk of change cheaper.

I have had both on currenty just put new Toyos on my 2000 for the second time. I got 35K out of my Nittos and a little over 50 out of the toyos. I also found the nitos wonder on the road much more than the toyo's. Must be the compound. Toyo's cost me 330.00 for 325/60/20's

Do you think that I would be better sticking with the narrower 285/75R16 or move up to the 305/70R16? The truck is currently running 14.0s but has the trap speed for 13.7s if I can get it off the line better. I'm thinking that the 305s might slow me down a bit but will help with the 60'.

you will gain a little in the traction department with the 305's but they will slow you down at the end of the 1/4 so i would go with the 285's and work on the traction verses the wider tires...toyo builds the nitto tires..

Yes the Proxes S/T's ive heard wear fast. Khumo has an equivalent tire to the S/T which supposedly hooks just as good, but has better tread life.
