    The 2011 season is here, and it's time for some new skins. Anybody out there running Mickey Thompson S/R radial. They say it's a smooth ride. Looking for some input. Here some pics.

    yeah I just put some on my z28 but I opted for a 15x8 4.5 space. Nice ride. I would love to put tires as wide as yours. is your car mini tubed or is it stock.

    Installed a set of 235 / 60R 15's on a customers car last year. It sat in the garage over most of the winter but was driven ocassionally.

    The ride is smooth but the handling is a little slippery since the tires are still new.

    Only noticiable complaint is that they feel like they get a little "square" or flat spotted during colder weather and take a while to heat up.

    They do seem to be on par with road noise like the older Dunlop GT Qualifiers I loved but not as noisy as a Goodyear Eagle ST

    I LOVE mine!!! Run them front and back. 26x8 in front and 28x12x15's in the back. Before with my regular street tires and the BF Goodrich tires I could do a burnout anywhere. These hook so good now I just launch.

    I don't race my car to far to the tracks.

    I also got caught up in Kansas City in the rain, about a hundred and nine miles from home drove the hole way 65 mph all the way.Never would I have thought they would be that good in the rain. Could verly get them to spin while hot when wet.

    Again my car isn't a race car, but for a cool looking tire that has a great ride. I love them. Not sure how long they would last doing burnouts at the track. And I don't know how long slicks last either.

    There great on the street,so if you've been wanting then but wasn't sure about them. Pull the trigger!!!:cool:
