    I have a 1500 pounds Fritz Bantam with 940 pounds on the rear. We are running a procharged EcoTec with 610-650 hp a threespeed and fourlink, launch revs 5000-7000.
    The car is built for small tires so no bigger than 30 inch, what do you think? Radial or "normal", size, width, brand?
    Like the Status Quo song: "What are you proposing"?
    Regards PerErik

    Goodyear make a 10.5 wide radial with a 95-96 inch rollout that are fairly light. That would be my choice on a 10" rim.

    Hoosier makes a 29.5x10.5R15 (#18198) and 30x10.5R15 (#18214) that are in the 20-23 lb range, and Goodyear's 30x10.5-15 (#4915) radial is listed at 23.5lb. I am surprised the MT is that heavy, as their 9" version is closer to 23lb. These are similar to the 30x9 radials all of the stock eliminator cars run, so a very different application, but may be worth a shot. I have seen some 30x9 radials from Hoosier, MT, Goodyear on G/EA cars before.

    It is kind of strange that it is nearly 30% heavier than the nine inch, since we live in Sweden and it is not that easy to always get what you want, tire wise ;) , maybe we will try the MT anyway..

    I'd use the Goodyear if it's available. It would be a better choice.

    Hayden Wheels has the 31x12x15 Goodyear D2585 placed on a special order because GY is not planning some tires to be stocked
    The D2585 weighs 22.5 lbs
