    i'm looking into getting DOT legal slicks. and i'm looking at Kuhmo ecsta V710 drag radial's. and BFGoodrich G-Force T/A drag radial's.

    the Kuhmo's are $143 each plus $18.00 shipping for 2. and the G-Force's are $116 each with free shipping.

    has anyone used either of them? have they help'd your drag times? any info please!!

    thanks

    Well, the Kumhos should have never been a choice- they're not designed to be used at the drag strip.

    Oh- I'm sure that you could definitely use them at the drag strip- I'm sure that they would perform better than street tires... but drag radials and real drag slicks would still be better and cost the same amount of money.
