Here are the comparisons:

Tire..............Style......Compound..Height..Section..Tread..Weight
315x60x15..ET DR.....R2..............30........12.9......11.9....39
29.5x10.5....PRO.......X5...............30........12.7......10.2....33

Thoughts?

The pro Bracket Radial is a full slick , no grooves at all .
I understand the use of a 12" rim is common . I would suggest asking Jason Moulon on Yellowbullet . He is the MT rep and has been very helpful to me .

If you are asking if your 12" wheel is too wide.......the answer is NO. Most of the drag radial "hitters" run that tire AND the 315 on 14" wheels, so the 12s will be just fine. That's what we run, but only because 14s won't fit under the car

I run the 275-60-15 Pro Drag radial on my car, it should fit that 8in rim with a little bulge.

I run them on 15x10, with 22 psi in them i have been a 1.42 60ft, best et so far of 6.52.

Just something else to think about, plus they are much cheaper around $228.00 a tire.

I've been running the standard 28/10.5 on my wife's barracuda with great results but I'm thinking about trying the 28/10.5 bracket radials this year. The MT rep said I will be very happy with them and are way more forgiving than the traditional radial slicks.

I had the same issue. The 275 Pros shook bad on the street like they were out of balance something terrible. Didn't notice it at the track. They are a good working tire, but I've never had a problem like that w/ any other tires and I never balance my rears.

I am on my second set of 275 pro's and haven't had a vibration issue. I also like you don't balance my rear tires. Never shakes at track or street driving.

The bracket radials are more forgiving on a marginal track and have a longer life.

Yea I do not balance my rears either, I haven't driven much on the street maybe 100 miles or so but no shaking at the track.

Good to know though in case something ever comes up.

they were so bad , pro 275, I thought something was coming off the car - probably a wheel .like you I never balancing the rears . the pro275 needed something close to 200grams to get close . MT were good and took them back as faulty . with the pro bracket I barely have 28 grams to balance ( 1 ounce). I only balanced these to get a comparison . have never balanced or checked the hoosier radial .
hoosiers are very forgiving , I hope I can get a bit more life with the MT though . also hoping the new 10" rim I ordered will help the lifespan
hey belvedere do you have the stock rear width differential under your 65 ? tubbed ? what backspace rim ?

My car is mini tubbed with a strange 9in, I believe the rear is 4 in narrower than stock. It also has inboard leaf springs and the wheels are 15x10 weldstars with 4.5 in backspacing.

I’ve now got about 25 or 30 passes on my 28x9 ProBracket Radials. I’m very happy with the performance. They were worth about a .05 over the ET Drags I was using prior. I’m finding they work best for me down around 18psi. Longevity is still to be seen, but the car has been a copy machine with them thus far.

I have a set with 100 or so passes on them and even some street miles, they look brand new and have worked great. I have only had a few runs with spin on very marginal tracks.

The balance is fantastic on them and i have fought them moving on the rims some. I am going to put some glue on them and see how that holds up.

I ran both the Pro Bracket Radials 29x 10.5 -15 and the Pro Et Street radials 315x55-15. I switch to the Pro ET Street radial to enter events where Dot tires are required, My car weighs around 3500 pounds with driver and has run 9.8s ..1.42 60 ft times. We dialed it back to 10.1.We have Caltracs with Viking Rear shocks set a C 14 R 8. I have some traction problems with the Single adjustable shocks, but after switching to the dual adjustable no more problems. On my car I saw no difference between the Pro Bracket Radial and the Pro Et Street radials faster cars might, but I didn’t. Love them just bought a new set, it’s a Street/ Strip car with a 512, foot braking. It’s a 69 Dart.

I'm running these on my wagon around 4000-4100lbs. Runs a best of 7.02 in the 1/8. I found very consistent 60' times once I got used to what they liked for a burn out. For my very short, little smoke worked best. My 60's are usually 1.53 with these.

Oh my wagon uses 8" rims and 20 psi wks best.

Wowser , this is an old thread
I did go the PBR . 28x10.5
Though now have the 29.5 x10.5
Only drawback is i have to deflate them to fit both in the boot with all my other stuff . Never needed to with the 28s
