What kind of 60 ft are you guys getting with the 16s? I ran almost identical 60ft times last night with the hoosier and my everyday 18 inch et streets. Given the Hoosiers are old but, I wanna know if it is worth buying another set. Funny thing is the truck ran the same ET to the thousandth on each pass..

If that is the case, I will just keep the radials on it. I can get into the 1.5X with the 18s on it.

Get some bogarts and buy some real DR's
I would assume you are talking about 315/60/15...It better 60ft low 1.4x with them on there as we have been in the 1.2x with them on the mustang! I think that is the way I am gonna go. But the 18s are hooking for such short sidewall.

Yes thats the tire. I have cut a 1.47 so far on those and I know of one guy with a Gen 2 Lightning who has cut a 1.28 on the same tire.

can the 315/45/16 perform anywhere near these 60ft times? I am in the market for a new set of track shoes and do not want nor have the $ to go 15's

Thats not the same style M/T that I have and I dont know if one style is more aggressive than the other just because of the tread pattern. According to their site its the same rubber compound though. I will say I think they are a little short for your needs though.
