I got a pair of New 255-50-16 BFG Drag radials that I bought by mistake.
I am trying to trade at the shoot out for a set of tires that are 5spd friendly. "IE" ET drags or slicks 16".

I will take $275 if no one has tires to trade. Guys with the autos in the street class that requires you to have radials this is a good chance to get a nice set of tires. These are 150ea plus 18ea shipping from tire rack. Thats $336 so you save 61 bux.

These have stiff side walls since they are radials. The 5spds+wheel hop does not like radials very much. At the torque levels I am afraid of snapping some axles. A mild Auto SC will be a better match for these tires. I have to drive back my car to Boston so I am paranoid about breaking Axles at the shootout.
