Are drag radials worth it?
- Drag radials, like the Hoosier DBR in sizes such as 28x10 and 28x10.5 17, are favored among drag racers for their traction and street-friendly characteristics. They offer improved grip over standard street tires, providing better launches and traction during acceleration, making them a worthwhile investment for drag racing enthusiasts who want both track performance and street usability.
What tire pressure should I run in drag radials?
- The ideal tire pressure for drag radials can vary based on factors like vehicle weight, track conditions, and the specific tire model. Generally, starting with lower pressures around 15-18 PSI and gradually adjusting based on track performance and tire behavior is recommended to achieve optimal traction and performance for drag racing.
What PSI should a Hoosier DBR be?
- The recommended PSI for a Hoosier DBR drag radial tire, such as the Hoosier 28x10.5 17, can vary depending on the specific vehicle setup, track conditions, and launch characteristics desired. Experimenting with different PSI settings within the manufacturer's recommended range can help dial in the tire's performance and traction for drag racing applications.
What makes a tire a drag radial?
- A drag radial tire, exemplified by the Hoosier DBR line, distinguishes itself by combining aspects of street tires and slicks. It features a tread design resembling a traditional tire for street use but includes a softer compound and construction similar to slicks, optimizing traction during launches while maintaining street-driving capabilities.
The Hoosier DBR drag radial, including the 28x10 and 28x10.5 drag radial 17, stands out for drag racing applications, delivering exceptional traction and performance. Engineered with specialized compounds and design, these tires offer a balance between street-friendly characteristics and the grip required for intense drag racing competitions.
- DOT-labeled Hoosier Racing Tires meet Department of Transportation requirements for marking and performance only and are NOT INTENDED FOR HIGHWAY USE. It is unsafe to operate any Hoosier Racing Tire including DOT tires on public roads. The prohibited use of Hoosier Racing Tires on public roadways may result in loss of traction, unexpected loss of vehicle control, or sudden loss of tire pressure, resulting in a vehicle crash and possible SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH.
