et street vs radial

I have stock 17"-8" that I want to put these tires on. Would the mt 275/40/17 radial be better or the et street 26X11.50-17LT.

I have read about people using the radial on an 8" wheel, but not anything on the et street. This will be used at the track only.

stock engine with a turbo, 4r70w and 3k stall. Stock 3.27s. Best car has gone is [email protected] with a 1.94 60' on cheap street tires.

Go with the 26X11.5X17 ET Street, it will fit fine on the 8" rim.

ET Streets> Radials

If your daily driving, go with a radial. If your a weekend warrior, and take the car out for a few drives during the week, get the ET Street (bias ply).

Tried the 275/40/17 M/T DR and my 500 rwhp fox body would not hook worth of cråp, at the track you need wrinkle in those tires, go with 15 in. draglites and the ET Streets with sidewall and you will hook so hard you'll break parts.

Probably not on a 17" rim. Just not enough sidewall there to flex much.

I use to have problems with 26x10 ET Drags on the stock rear turbine wheels (15") with standard 225/60 radials up front. It would move around a bit on the big end. No problems now with 28x10.5 and Moroso front skinnies.
