Whats the fastest you have been on this tire in a swing arm dragster? Considering these over the 3186. Currently run 4.60-4.65, and use 200 hp for 2 seconds to run 4.50 class. Tried both big and little bubbas and both were slower than the 3186. Just want to get some opinions.

Thanks!

With the knowledge gained from Outlaw 10.5 racing (wide rim small tire) and with the help of Billy Glidden, the 34/13.5-16 tire was born PN# 3190W, it was named Bubba after Billy's pet bird.

Soon after the Bubba Grande was developed which was 35/15-16 PN# 3195......similar concept but a bit larger.

People will now start with the pro's and con's of each Smile

. That's for explaining the term. Actually I run the MT 3195 and like them. I see now they make them with a different compound (L5 vs X5). Anyone have info on the L5 which is 3196.

update.


Borrowed a set of 3196s from a friend. And they worked GREAT! They were .015 and 1 mph faster than my wore-out 3186. Last time I tried a set of these tires, was on a 2006 model 4 link car running roughly .1 slower, and the car lost .05. On my new car, 2017 American, they worked perfectly and drove better than when the 3186 were in much better shape. Below is the numbers the car was running tonight with the 3196. I believe I will go ahead and get a new set of these.

60 = 1.035-1.38
330 = 2.966-2.970
660 = 4.606-4.611
mph = 149.2-148.9

Can any of these 3 tires, 3183, 3186 or the 3196 be run without beadlocks ? Looking to change from "another" brand and need to know if I have to change wheels. Currently 16x16 non beadlocks.

I was one of the first to run this tire when it came out and have ran it on 5 different cars of my own. I currently still run the 3183 with great success. I've been 4.54 on it in 30 degree weather and 4.5s in 100+ degree weather. I've ran it on both beadlocks and non beadlocks (current no beads or rim screws).

QtRwarrior, the 3183 & 3186 can be ran on either rim, the 3195/3196 IMO should be ran on beadlocks.
