STARTER radials lol. The nittos will last a long time. I got about 20k miles with 555r's on my lightning. On my mustang it was like 5-7k, and they have been on two other cars since then. I also had a set of BFG's that had 75% tread left when i got them and they only lasted for about 1000 miles, and i didnt even do any serious burnouts with those. Ive been thru three sets of Mickey's now, and id say i could get 5k out of them if i really pushed it. I probably have 3500 to 4000 miles on my current set, i also run them for a month or two after the wear bars are gone. Any brand 275/60 radials will last much longer on a 10" rim, and it will also hook better that way.
IMO if you have a 5 speed there is no drag radial that will ever work as well as a stiff sidewall slick, but im going to give the radials a shot again this year at the track and see what i can do on them since i found a issue with the car that may have been effecting my 60 foot times for the last 2 years.
Phew, thats alot of tires, ill be buying my 4th set of mickey t's this year, i wish they had one of those punch cards like sandwich and coffee shops use, buy 4 sets of drag radials, get the 5th one free lol
