Slicks whos running them

Will be going 16" with grinded caliper, is anyone running M & H 31.5/12.0 16 nostalgia?
So many options not sure which way to go.
With all the racing, there should be a Sticky note stating sizes that will work.

I have done lots of searching.

thx Adam

The sticky is a good suggestion. I know a guy that can do that.

Also, here is the link to the calculator I used to give you the tire size recommendation that others can use to do the same:

There is also an equation that you can use to do this by hand that Trainman provided me several years back. If you prefer the pencil and paper route.

Drag radials are actually harder on the drivetrain than a full slick.

Did you at least put a set of cryoed spyders in it .


The death zone is dropping clutch at 4000 to 5000 rpm repeatedly .

Hell no! I'm waiting for the weak link to present itself before I replace perfectly good parts.

Like Andy said, slicks are much easier on the drive train because the sidewalls have more give to them. Drag radials will normally give you a few more mph top end though. I've run 26/10.5/17, 31/12/16(the ones you're looking at), 28/14.5/16, and currently run a 30/14/16. You're going to need BIG power to run those nostalgia slicks because they're just too tall, how high are you going to rev the engine? As far as durability I was dumping the clutch at 4500-5000 NA, eventually broke the limited slip. Replaced that and added cryod spiders and now I'm doing 4000rpm on a 100shot of spray.

Took me 6 years of pretty heavy racing to finally break something.
