Ain’t that the truth! Should work like a champ. If someone don’t hurry up and try them guess I will have to put tubs and 14” wheels on my junk and try them myself!!

iforgot- itchy finger on the cutoff saw trigger.

Give Woodfin a PM on here as I know he has done quite a bit of racing with them. Also Michael Beard has run them as well I believe.

I got to put 9 runs on my 9x28 PBR's before my season ended.
I was impressed, .005 60' variance between 2 tracks a week apart.
I have not "turned it up" on these tires yet, but it's very good as it is. I was running the 9x30 Goodyears for MANY years. The 6303 tires always worked, I believe I bought a bogus pair of 4457's and chased my car for 2 seasons trying to make them work.
I will purchase some 10" wheels and get the 29.5x10.5 PBR's next.

The 29.5 PBRs worked great for me for the last 2 1/2 seasons. Just haven’t seen the new 14x32 PBRs on anything yet..
Goob- my 29.5’s are on 8” wheels, they work great. 28/10.5 PBR didn’t like the 8” wheel but the 29.5 version has been great. I was going to put 10” wheels on mine for the 29.5’s but tried them on the 8” I already had, and was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked. So the 8” stayed on the car.

The harder you hit them, the better they like it. whole different animal than bias slicks. Have not put any air in them in nearly 2 months, still have 18 psi from the last time I ran the car.

I guess i'm the only one that has ever ran the PBR and didn't like it. The tire worked fine. I just didn't like the feel of it. I guess its so stiff they hit really hard on my car and felt like it was going to tear something up. I've tried them twice because I want to like them. I ran the 28x9, it picked up .08 and I think a couple mph. I run leaf springs, slide-a-links, and a single adjustable shock. Maybe I need more adjustments to make them feel better i dont know.

good to see that some here have decided to enter the 21st century while many outside of this forum including myself have been running radial slicks for over 20 years, back in the 20th century. Laughing very hard

Been 1.17 60 foot @ 3144 lbs. on Hoosier 32/13.5 radial slicks and 1.28 60 foot @ 3880 lbs. on Hoosier 30/10.5 radial slicks. Both off the footbrake.

Is a gear change normally needed? Run 1/4 mile I'm sure they don't grow like a normal slick.
