Get Ready to Race: Best Tires for Your Car

You’ve just purchased your car and you’re ready to hit the track – but what type of tires should you buy? Drag racing requires special tire designs and different rubber compounds, so let’s explore some of the best options. Whether you're a drag racing pro or just getting started, you'll find the perfect tire set-up for your car.

High Performance Street Tires
If you plan on driving your car around town in addition to taking it to the track, high performance street tires will give you the best of both worlds. These all-season tires are designed to provide improved traction while maintaining a good balance between comfort and handling. Some popular options include Nitto NT555 G2, Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08R, and Michelin Pilot Super Sport. All three brands offer excellent grip and exceptional performance on both wet and dry surfaces.

Drag Racing Slicks
If you plan on using your car exclusively for drag racing, then slicks are the way to go. There are several types available from various manufacturers including Hoosier, Mickey Thompson, Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar G2, M/T ET Drag Radial Pro, and BFG Drag Radial II. Each one is designed specifically for drag racing with features like extra sticky compound for maximum grip on the starting line or aggressive tread pattern for improved traction in wet conditions. You can also choose from different sizes depending on your specific needs.

DOT Approved Drag Radials
Finally, if you want something that can handle both street driving and occasional trips to the track then consider DOT approved drag radials like Nitto NT05R or BFG Rival S 1.2. This type of tire combines the qualities of a slick with those of an all-season tire so they can be used both on the street and at the track without sacrificing too much performance in either application. They are great for those who don't want to commit fully to either one but still want a great experience when they take their Supra out for a spin!

No matter what type of tires you choose for your car – whether it’s high performance street tires or race specific options – make sure they match your particular style of driving as well as budget. With so many different brands and models available today, there is sure to be something that fits exactly what you need from your tires! And once you have them installed, get ready to hit that track in style!
