Has anyone tried the new 29.5 x 10.5 x 17? I have so much torque and in ten attempts I have hooked twice with the mickey thompson 315 50 17s. Best is a 2.1 to 60 and a 1.29 60 foot time. That was at 4000 feet. So I just ordered the radial slicks. What pressure do I run these at? I am hoping someone has tried this new tire size.

Crew Chief Greg was researching those for his car. Seems the Ford guys using them are having problems with them holding the bead. Crew Chief decided on MT ET Street R.

1.29 60' is really good.

If your running a 1.29 60’ that’s really good man. Just saying.

as a matter of consistency that could be an issue. If it’s intermittent than you could look at the slicks.

That was at 4000 feet. 2.62 gear and demon converter with the stroker. That was the only time it hooked. So frustrating. March 12th is tnt. Hopefully with the radial slicks.

If your getting 1.29s stick with the ETRs.

Tires are here. Only hooked twice out of ten times. 1.29 and 1.30. Not consistent. 9.6 @ 144 with 4000 foot da. Track static elevation 3075. These things are light.
