I have a friend that uses the 15 x 26 x 10.5 Pros on a high 12 sec. car. He gets 1.75 60' times with slapper bars.

I have seen many cars use them at the drags. They don't work too bad, but they aren't designed for drag racing as much as they're designed for street-rodding and such. Most make the mistake of backing into the water and doing a huge burnout which makes it worse...the treads hold the water and the huge burnout makes 'em greasy.

They are similar to drag radials but they have 2 ply nylon wrinkle bias walls and a softer compound. Run about 16 psi in them and pull around the water box and back in if possible. Do your burnouts from the wet edge of the water box and give em a good smokem-up!! You'll be surprised at how good they grip when they get heated up right.
