Has anyone switched to the 32 x 14 pbr and had issues with them working? I'm considering switching to them or the stiff side bias tire. Were talking 6.0 car @ 2800 pounds..

What are you presently using and what’s wrong with them?

32x14 tires like MT 3074S are recommended for 14” wide rims. If you have 14” rims these MT along with Hoosier 18245 are what I like on my 2835# car.

If you have 12” wide rims, the MT 3073W would be a good choice as it’s the same compound (L8) as 32x14 and are extra wide tread made for 12” wide rims.

I’ve never run radials, but what I’ve seen others experience on less than optimal track conditions with them has me remaining on bias ply tires. jmho

I was going to put MT 14x32 PBR on my car a couple of months ago, but no one had any, nor did anyone have an expected ship date from the manufacturer. So I went back to the Hoosier 32x13.5W tire I've always had such good luck with on my car (6.20s, 2900 lbs.)

Believe you'd be happier with the 13.5w Hoosier. Tried the 14x32 Hoosier 14x32 M/T stiff and 13.5w x 32 hoosier on 3000lb 5.90 car. 13.5w was way better working and amount of runs before replacing.

I agree with Hetzler and BM2217. The Hoosier 18245 (32x13.5- 15W* stiffwall) are my absolute favorite of all I have used.

Be aware that these can measure up to 104” circumference when mounted at 10 psi. My present set was 103.5 when new.

Looking at Hoosier specs, they list them fitting on 12 -14” wide rims which I find surprising.

My altered was 1750 and the MT 3074 was best tire I have ran. But your car being 2800 Lbs may not be the same.

"Dunning-Kruger Effect"
-a type of Cognitive bias where people with little expertise or ability assume they have superior expertise or ability. This overestimation occurs as a result of the fact that they do not have enough knowledge to know they don't have enough knowledge.

Before you argue with someone ask yourself, "Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of a different perspective?" If not there is no point to argue.

I switched from the M/T 32x14 tire to the PBR 31.5x13 by M/T...best tire I have ever run...these radials don't care about hot track temps or tire pressure...they just hook...I was going to get the PBR 32x14 but Jon Siegel was a test mule for these tires before they came out...he told me the 31.5x13's actually worked better than the 32x14's...

If you have ever seen his wagon leave you'd listen to him as well...lol...I run 17 1/4 lbs. in them and they rarely ever lose any air even after a month or two sitting...very light burnout does the trick...no break in time at all...my junk is a 79 Monte with a 496 BBC on pump gas...weighs 3350 with me in it...I have a glide with 5:13 gears out back...it is a slow bracket car I bottom bulb...runs 6.60's in the 1/8th...

I just switched from Phoenix 12.2 W to the 31x13.5 late.this season, and they flat out work. I never had problems with the Phoenix, but wanted to try the MT radials. So far so good. Running 13 psi and i know they will take more air psi. ZERO Suspension or shock changes. My cars is 3000#, small block, 4.56 gear ,6.0to 6.15 in the 1/8. 9.50s in the 1/4. Very light burnout, and they hook. I'm done for the year, but am already looking forward to. Next year.

What was your gain when switched?

I gained a little et but not as much as some others. I ran 11-11.5 psi in the Phoenix tires. Car did launch better, and the 60 ft was .01-.02 better, maybe .04 better in the 1/8, at best.
