    Phoenix, hoosier, goodyear, etc they're all good.
    Wheter one brand is better than the other? Well that is probably a toss up.

    Usually it boils down to brand/price preference for some, not so for others.


    I just matched what I had on the back - phoenix's all 4 corners.

    Reality is that Goodyears are probably the best, otherwise all the pro cars wouldn't be running them. More expensive yes, i've got MT's on the front of my Malibu, i'm sure they are good for 200 mph or more, Goodyears run 330 mph plus. I think they are all safe otherwise they wouldn't be approved by NHRA.

    I would say that Goodyear or Hoosier you can't go wrong on. I have never had success getting a MT tire to hold air. On our dragster, we have gotten the best life out of a Hoosier.

    I run Moroso front and MT rear. Hey Shawn I found that coating the sidewalls with dish soap using a foam brush has solved the leaking problem. So far so good anyhow.

    Tried it all with MT. Used murphys soap, used dawn dish soap and even did what MT recommended by soaping, let dry and then re-soap and mount. Always had flats by the next weekend.
