How "big" is your small block?

Little Bubba's are a great tire to start with but the last thing you want to do with a small block car is to over tire it.

As previously stated, how much power does you combo have?

Very true! I had a dragster with a little motor on it way back when and the car was much more consistent with smaller tires. Night and day difference between the 16 x 33 tires a lot of people ran back then and the 14.5 x 32 that my car liked.

So you have 16" wheels on a smallblock car? The "Bubbas" are designed for 16" wheels only.

3191W are the Little Bubbas used on a dragster.

My small block car liked MT 3074 14x32. That being said if you have 16" beadlock wheels 10.5x33-16s is what I'd look into.

What size small block did you run and what kind of dragster? If you don't mind my asking

Then I would run the MT 3074 that tire has worked well on my car.

Thanks everyone for the replies. We have a new shorty 4 link coming and not a lot of motor. Looks like the 3074s is gonna be it. Which is exactly what my very close friend has already state to me.

I think on that car the 3074 (not the "S") might be the better choice. Heavier door car I would go with the "S" stiffer sidewall.

The 3074 tire is a 15 inch tire, the Little Bubba is a 16 and I think they recommended a 16 x 16 rim WITH beadlocks. Also I think the Little Bubba is a taller tire. Both are good tires but I think the 3074 may be a better choice for you.
And good luck with the new car.

Do any of you guys running the 3074's have issues when the track gets marginal? I just asked because of with lack weight back there with the small block set up. I'm running 33x16 Hoosiers with a 443 sbc running high 5.0's. I would consider trying a smaller tire and an M/T just to loose the burnout shake and some rotational weight if the 3074's are good even when the track gets greasy or cold.
