    My car was kinda built around the 345 55 15 bf Goodrich drag radial but now it appears this size is no longer available. I would like to see what people are running with mini tubs. I want a tall and wide tire to fill the wheel well . 295s seem to be my only option anyone got a picture. Mine are 30 inches tall with a 14.6 section width. 20200420_102800.jpg

    Jegs says M&H drag radials 390-45x15 are 29.5 tall, 14.8 section width on a 12" rim, and 12.1 on the ground. Both nitro and M/T make 325x50 drag radials, a little smaller and shorter than yours.
    If you have a 12" rim, the 390 should be less than an 1/8 wider to either side.
    They aren't cheap.
    Hoosier makes a quick time pro, 29-14.5x15 that is close, and $150 cheaper per tire, but that is basically a stiff wall bias slick with grooves. Great for a street racer, lousy for a driver.

    Yeah I seen all of those, probably gonna have to go with thos M&H ugh!
    Hoosier are bias I have radials on the front and the Mickeys are about right but 11 inch wide is the max, the 315 60 15 is closer than any tire but can only fit 11inch wide rims, why? Don't know

    I don't know either, mine are on a twelve inch rim, and I've seen them on fourteens. Probably Mickey legally cya. The 315s have a DOT, but they also say "not for highway use" in big letters. Street legal? Only the officer that stops you will know. Lol. (Left, in the pic.)

    Guys with those tires are in the low 4 seconds at 170 mph in the eighth mile, on fourteen inch rims. They're pretty stable
    Edit: I think the record for a 315 might be in the threes, at over 200 mph.

    I have 315''s on 12" wide wheels. They measure 30" x 15.5" on the section width when mounted.
