Default Radials

Did a little bit of searching on here but couldn't quite find the right answer. Any bracket racers running the Mickey Thompson or Hoosier radials? I have an S10 I was trying to fill up the fender wells with a 14-in slick but the Hoosier tires I bought with the wheels have a 2-in bulge. I know the radials have a lot less bulge, but I haven't talked to too many people who have tried them successfully.

Always check the section width of the slick if your tight on clearance. I liked the Hoosier # 18239 31.5/13.5-15 Radial. Tread width is 13.5 & Sec. width is 16.3". Best to use a 14" wide rim.

I'm going to do some more measuring but that was the tire I was looking at.

This is the tire I run on my super stock car. Good tire. Hooks good. good life. I would give them a try.

I would but I have the wrong backspace. I bought some MT 10.5x33x15Ws,they fit exactly flush to outside fender.I needed 5 1/2 B's and screwed up somehow 🤔
