The Mickey Thompson ET Street R will be Mickey's most aggressive street legal drag radial available in their rather expansive lineup. Now the Street R will be available in sizes to fit both a 15 and 17-inch drag wheel here on the site and will range in size from 275 on the narrow side to 325 on the wider side. As always guys, expect your pricing to vary depending on the sizing but you'll be looking at right around 180 bucks for the smaller stuff, upwards of 250 bucks for some of the larger sizing. Now for you guys out there who know that Mickey Thompson name, you'll know that this is the kinda stuff the company specializes in. Right? Drag tires and things along those lines are the company's bread and butter. Now they have diversified their lineup a little bit over the years but I think most people hear that Mickey Thompson name, you think hardcore drag tires like the ET Street here. And speaking of drag tires, ever since 2004 Mickey has kinda been evolving their drag radial lineup starting with the legendary ET Street, followed shortly by the ET Street 2. Now both of those tires were staples for drag racers in the DOT classes for both NMRA and NMCA but as time went on Mickey felt it was time to evolve their radial gain even further to appeal to a wider range of customers. So now they have a bunch of tires in the radial category including the ET Street Pro, the Street S/S and the Street R that we're talking about here today. Now when comparing this tire, the ET Street R versus Mickey's other street legal drag radial, the S/S, it's immediately apparent what the big difference is. The S/S is going to be more of a street tire and you're gonna see a lot more tread void with that radial and therefore a little bit more traction in wet weather if encountered. Now the Street R here on the other hand, well, as you guys can see there is certainly a big time lack of void which is certainly going to allow for more traction in dry conditions on the street and at the strip. However, it would no doubt be a handful in wet weather. So because of that strictly gonna recommend this thing for nice weather cars in addition to cars that strictly get driven to and from the track and not to go on a daily driver out there because again, driving something like this in the rain would certainly not be fun. Now all of Mickey's radials will utilize the same R2 compound which is gonna be super soft, super grippy and hook up very well on the street and even better at the track on a prep surface. So because of that I'd be a little wary of using this tire, the radial, on a high horsepower stick car as it will no doubt be a little hard on equipment. Luckily for you guys out there, Mickey does also make a bias ply version of the ET Street R here. It's also gonna be DOT street legal and at the same time it's gonna be far more forgiving on those high horsepower stick cars, you wanna dump the clutch at the track and not explode the rear diff in the process. Now the flipside of that soft compound is don't expect to get 50,000 miles out of these tires or really anywhere close to that. Now ultimately sure, your driving habits and your racing habits will have a direct correlation to the life of the tire itself, but let's face it guys you're buying these things not for a long life but for traction. Also because of that soft compound cold weather use will be a little bit tricky, so just use caution when driving with these things in sub 40 degree temperatures as it will harden up on you and when in doubt quick little burnout to get things warm is never a bad idea. Keep in mind here guys the Mickeys do also qualify for our free mountain balance, our optional nitrogen fill and finally free shipping and handling along with your favorite 15 or 17-inch drag wheel. It's a great way to take some of the work out of the process for you guys. That way when your new drag pack shows up to your door simply unbox them, bolt them up and you are ready to rock and roll. Wrapping things up guys. If you're looking for a super aggressive drag radial that will be DOT legal and offer boatloads of traction, you'll wanna check out the ET Street R radial right here at americanmuscle.com.
