I've seen the smaller sizes have been good for some. Is the 14-32 as good? Low 6 sec door car. Transbrake leaving.

I have ran them all and this is what is on my car. In my opinion it does not take near the burn out time... I like them and will be purchasing another set in the near future. My car is 5.7's 1/8th mile

I have been looking at them but haven't made the switch. I heard they only work on a "good" track and will go away fast. I think i'm going to stick with my 3074s.

I'd say if your car works really good you can adjust and make them work for you.
I ran 10.5 PBR's for most of a year and they did work when the track was good. Then suddenly after being good all day the car would shake and your day was over, and I'm footbraking but I do have a lot of starting line ratio with a 3 spd. One of the last races this year car in the other lane was on big PBR's and doubled. We were dialed real close at high 6's and we were both on the TB. I never saw the other car and when I looked back they were still on the line. I figured they broke but what happened was they just blew the tires off like a fuel car. By that race I had gone back to bias and my car was great all day.
Was my car quicker and faster on radials?, yes it was. Was it consistent on good tracks?, yes on that too. Did it rattle the tires on different tracks when the track went away? yes on that too.
I can easily get over 200 passes on a set of bias slicks and never have a tire problem.
The best thing I can tell you is try them, then you'll know if you like them.

Something else to consider Jay, when I went to put new tires on my car last year, I was going to switch to the M/T PBR 14x32. Only one problem, NO ONE had any and no one knew when they were going to get any again.

Not to long ago I switched from 14x32 bias ply MT slicks to 13.5x13 PBR's...my car runs 6.50/60's in the 1/8th....it weighs 3350 with me in it...

I have never had a better tire on any car I have ever raced...never have to fool with the tire pressure, it stays the same...cold track, hot track does not make any difference...they are deadly...

I have run at 6 different tracks in 4 states...outside temps from 98* to 42*...track temps from 80's to 150*...my buddies who have these tires get 250+ passes on them, many over 300...

A quick story...when I was looking at these tires, I spoke with Jon Siegel with the wheelie wagon...he was a test mule for these before they came out...he told me not to get the 14x32's and to go with the 13.5x13's which I did...he said they just worked better...

Fuzzy, whats Jon's car weigh? It might work because of you guys being heavy. I am only 2500 with me in the car.

I am not sure what Jon's car weighs but you may be correct...maybe heavier is better for the PBR's...

I will have to check the number...it is the 31.5x13x15 pro bracket radial by MT...

I switched from hoosier 13.5x31s to 12.2w phoenix bias plys, now th the same tire as fuzzy, 3373R pro bracket radial. My car works with all of them, but i like the PBR's so far. Ive got about 30.passes on them and am very pleased. My car with me is just shy of 3000#, ladder bar car. I took pinion angle out before i switched from the phoenix( it had way too much) and now with the pbrs, launches just like it did before changing the pinion angle. Im curious how many runs they will last, but so far so good

Are there any racers that have won big bracket racing events ($10k or more) using radials last year (2018)?

Nova, my car is both trans braked and footbraked. I launch at 4600, and run 9.50- 9.60s, 1.29-1.32 60's, depending on weather. I havent footbraked it yet, but i dont think it will be an issue.

Been on 3362R’s for 3 seasons or so. Wouldn’t go back to a bias slick on my car, it loves PBRs.
My experience with PBRs has been they like to be hit hard, and seem to work better on heavier cars than bias slicks. I’ve been 1.41 @ 3700 pounds off the tbrake (496 BBC) on PBRs, and that was on a cold track. Light burnout, 17-20 psi, knock the crap out of them, and they work great.
Curious as to whether or not the 3373R works well- IF I ever put a big tire under my junk that’s what tire I’d use.
3362R lasts many moons, don’t leak air, are a heck of a lot more stable on the big end, and bite harder than any bias slick I’ve ever had. Maybe the 3373R does too??

Yes, I agree with you on how I should have asked this question. My car is 2840 and will run 6.0
