I ran a set of MT ET streets all this last season and was less than impressed with traction at the track. They seem to be good on the street though. Now I am looking at getting a set of real slicks that I can put on when I go to the track but I honestly don't know if there is any real difference between brands? So what do you guys use? I don't care how expensive they are, just want the best.
Thanks for the help.

Hoosier (Daddy?) seem to be most popular with the straight line guys in my club..

Agreed I have had good luck with Hoosier, they make a great stiff sidewall 10" tire for heavy cars, the Goodyear Eagles are good, some are made in US some are made in Chile, try and find US ones

I prefer inflated....
I have had experience with M&H Racemasters (1970 vintage slicks are slill working) GoodYears and Mickey Thompsons.
Too big will give you the best traction.
M/T's work very well, Better than their street slicks.
Its more a matter of price,size,availability,etc.

Pretty much an exho of n20michael's thoughts here...
I'm running Hoosier QT Pros (the street slick) on the street toy and am pulling the same 60' as I did with a pair of Goodyear Eagle soft sticky slicks http://www.nastyz28.com/ubb/smile.gif . Was so happy with the Hoosiers that I put a set of Hoosier slicks on the Nova and gave up 0.03 to 0.05 http://www.nastyz28.com/ubb/frown.gif over the old Firestone slicks I had. I think this goes more to weight than anything. I've ran Goodyears on light chassis's with good luck,,, Firestone (Phoenix) and Hoosiers seem to lend themselves a litttle better to heavier cars.

Thanks so much for all the replys! I think I will go with the Hoosiers since my car is a heavy beast LOL. I have done a lot of things to lighten this car up and with me in it, it still weighs in at 3200 lbs. But it does still have full interior http://www.nastyz28.com/ubb/smile.gif
