What tire should i run the M/T 3190w or the 3195?
This will be on a 4 like dragster 565 with a 1.80 gear set 4.30 rear gear 1850 pounds. This combo is new to me.

3190, easy choice
the 3195 is way to much for that combo IMHO

I guess you got the idea, but 3190 as well.

Big Steve, how many passes do your tires last?

I have 160 on the current set. I normally put new tires on every May/June so I have fresh rubber going into the hot months. So easily north of 200 passes. I rotate them on a as needed bases when I see excessive feathering start to develop.

Steve,

I just put a set of 3190 tires on my car. I always ran the 3183. Did you see any ET improvement with the 3190 tire.

I switched from my beloved Goodyears, maybe slowed a couple of hun because of the increased roll out but didnt shake my brains out and break stuff. car smooth as a Cadillac now. Keep your burnout short and I found mine are happiest at 6.5 psi

The OP didnt ask about the 3183, he asked about the 3190 and 3195...this is how tire threads get derailed

I can read just fine!
so are you the new unofficial moderator, deciding what is good and bad, or just a troll?

I've seen guys running big bubba on anywhere from a low 4.80 to a 3.90 in the 1/8. The bubba tire was designed to be used on high horsepower T/D cars, ones that hit the tire so hard it shakes so bad. The little bubba is more forgiving on lessor horsepower cars because of the difference in rollout, and being lighter than a 33.5/17/16 or bigger. Little bubba can be ran on fast cars too, just depends on your combo.

Going to the big bubba is usually when you are running in the 4.50's or quicker (from what we have done and seen). Although there are plenty of guys running the little bubba in the 4.50's and 4.40's ranges without any issue. Alot depends on car setup and what you are wanting to do.

I went from 4.81-2 down to 4.74 just chancing from the 3183 to the 3191. A lot less burnout needed with the lil bubba's and they are deadly consistant. I did find track temp made a fairly significant difference with the 3183 once you get above 115-118 degrees. Using a track temp gauge within the data logger showed that information and it corelated to the Time Slips.

I have over 150 passes on my lil bubba's and they will probably get run another 150-200 passes on a friends 4.90 dragster. I will be putting on a new set after the first couple of times out this year.
