I have a new to me tube chassis car, 2300sh pounds with driver. BBC makes about 770 HP 4.10 Gear 16x16 rear tire without bead locks. Converter stalled at 5600 in old heaver car 1.80 powerglide.
Race in the north, get temps down in 40s and into the 90s in summer 100 would be an exceptionally warm day.
Plan is to be underpowered and over tired.
I know Hoosier vs MT has been beat to death, more interested in specific tires of each brand. Space for tire is not an issue.
Oh BOY! Get yer popcorn out!!!
With the 16x16 wheels you are limited in tire choice. You are gonna get opinions ranging from X brand is best no matter what.... to you have the wrong size wheels.
Since you already have the wheels I'd pick one of the 33x16 tires for that wheel size from whatever brand you want and have fun. And while your at it put some more gear in it.
M/T 3183 would be my first choice!

What does the car have Dale? If you want to try them, i have a set of 15x15's with 33x15 D07 Hoosiers. 4-3/4 BC, 4-1/2 BS.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Tom H,
Hoosier #18600 33.5/16.0-15* 106.0˝ C07 39 lbs.
No 770hp 2300lbs car is going to blister any tire and if YOU try to mount the tire you suggested on his wheels I'll pay to watch.
Thanks Tom, I will check the BS and let you know.

In reference to your question about temperature the MT tires have been Much more consistent through a wider range of temperature for me.
The Hoosier tires on my car in cold weather would work normal until it got cold enough then they did not hook at all. Little or no in between. Plus the MT tires have never gave me any issues up to about 15* colder than the Hoosiers would hook with same car and set up.
I do not run the size you are looking for but I believe the MT compounds are better right now and able to handle a much wider temperature range. I run the 3074 and what ever compound it is works really well.

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.

Hoosier 33.5X17x16 C06 compound. Prob a little big for your combo, but it's a proven tire on door cars.
