    I have a set of 14" nitto drag radials for my front wheels. They are on a seperate set of wheels and I only use them on nights when I know I'll be racing. What psi should I set them to when I am street racing (drag)? What about when I go to the track?
    Thanks.

    Yea I know, I should test a bunch of different pressures. I just want to save every last piece of friction on my clutch for when I go to the track. Thought some one would know.

    Wow, still no reply. I ran them last night (see kill stories in a minute) at 20 psi. I got bad wheel hop once, but every time I broke em loose, they would just stick and pull me out of the hole. Will go lower at the track.

    drag radials are NOT slicks. you don't want to run them too low, as you won't gain any traction. high teens is the lowest id go with them.

    but again, it will vary for every car wieght, track condition, and power ofyour car.

    best way to tune them is trial and error at the track
