Thread: Rear tires

  1. #1

    Default Rear tires

    I purchased some slicks 28x10.5x15 they seem awfully close to the wheelwells what size tire are you using.

    How close? Actual slick or drag radial?

    What wheel are you running stock 15x8 sport wheels? I'm probably going to be running the same combo. Not sure if I should go 26 or 28 tall though.

    I was wanting to run ET Street S/S but the size choices are scarce. I assume 11.5 is going to be too wide for a stock truck and they don't make the 26 or 28 in 10.5. Guess that would mean my only choice is 27x10.5 for MT?

    treaded tires like street ss or et streets are measured differently than a slick, look at the section widths to figure out the street ss equivalent to a 28 10.5 slick.

    P/N 3453 is 275/60R15 aka "28x11.5". Section width is 11.1", height is 28.1". I'm actually more worried that that's too tall for not having gears. Will be ~400hp NA, 3200 stall, 3.92 gears, Detroit locker. Stock CC springs, lowering hangers, caltracs, hotchkis rear sway bar, I'll disconnect the front sway bar.

    275/50 is 25.9" tall.

    I would go with a 28” tall tire personally. I’ve tried 26” before and didn’t really notice a difference with my setup at the time.

    I ran 275/60’s on a stock offset wheel with no issues. The ET streets work really well in my opinion if you want a good radial tire.

    I concur that drag radials are WAY more effective at hooking up on the street than normal tires are.

    I have the e.t street 315 pro's. And they are amazing. I can pretty much hammer down from a dead stop and it damn near hooks. I haven't tried using the trans break on the street but I am very impressed.






    Maybe It just means I need more whp

    Yeah, drag radials don't hook for shit on the street with high horsepower, the under 400whp trucks around here will prolly work fine with them.

    They work better than my normal street tires.....
    but they aren’t any sort of “miracle” or anything.
    Just “better”.

    At the track I can run 11’s with them instead of 12’s or 13’s on street tires.
    BUT - they aren’t that awesome in the rain. LOL

    28x10.5x15 is a big ass tire for a 8" rim, too big IMO.

    They balloon or round out top and bottom , 10in wheel gives you more flat foot print

    I'm making the same mistake running 12" slicks on 10" rims, to get full contact the tire pressure is so low I'm wadding up the tires. PLUS...They grow like a bitch too.

    Maximum width?

    I have 10" Rim, 12" slicks.
    Don't go by the tire charts, talk to to the 8.5 and 10.5 guys at the track. MT recommends a 10" rim for a 28x13.5, minimum is 9".
