MT ET Streets VRS. Hoosier Quick Time Pro Drags? What is better?

Here is the deal.

Here are the two tires specs.

MT ET Street.

28 x 11.50 x 15 8.6 tread 10.9 section 27.5 tall

Hoosier Quick Time Pro Drag

28 x 11.50 x 15 10.0 tread 11.2 section 28 tall



Even though the Hoosier is a little wider and taller I've been told that the MT ET Street would be a better one to use.

I will need as much traction as possible so I wanna buy the better tire in this case!

You guys have any luck with Hoosiers?


Will they act like a MT ET Street would for traction?

Worse? as good ? better?

Thanks guys......DT.

Victor recently changed to Hoosiers on Project 460. 60fts are in the 1.4X now... from 1.5's. He says they are more consistant as well (comparing to ET Drags).

Thanks 67 Stang!

I guess if the Hoosiers act like the MT ETs do there would be no reason for me not to run the slightly taller and wider thread footprint Hoosiers?

I guess also that so many guys run MT ET Streets that they would never think anything else to compare to them.

I have tried both tires and I don't think there is an difference between the 2. In my opinion, if you think traction is going to be a problem, get the tire with the biggest footprint. Better yet get a real slick. They will hook even better.

I dont know much about the Hoosier tire line, but isnt the Pro Drag comparable to the ET Drag? If so, then it should hook better/more consistantly than the ET Street.

Hoosier tires have a really deep tread and last forever, compared to the MT drag tires.

They seem to hook about the same to me.

I've been using Hoosiers lately.

Good Luck!

I've used the Hoosiers with good results. The car will 60 ft. as well as when it has the MT slicks.

Thanks guys!

I will go with the Hoosiers for the car.

Like I said I need all the traction I can get so the bigger footprint and taller Hoosier will only help me.
