Now now... there'* plenty of S2'* out there for the meet to try and keep up with him. He'* done a lot of work and deserves lots of credit for it. Let'* keep this one on the topic of the nice light slicks...

They are the same brand as Wren'*..and that is plain coincidence.

Good choice. Mine are obviously stickier either cold or hot than Paul'* ET streets or Travis'/Shadd'* Hoosier QTP'*.

Have you weighed them? Travis' hoosiers weigh 40lbs each mounted on those light aluminum chevy rims. Mine are 50lbs on 15" Park Ave rims, and Pauls are 55 pounds on Driverjohn'* old stock rims.

Badnit....

Weigh a tire for us!

I honestly don't think they are 40lbs ... the rims are super light.

Wow, I didn't realize there was that much difference.
We will all have a hard time spinning these puppies.......either too sticky or too heavy.

I think our bathroom scales are both off in opposite directions.

Boosty'* tires (if wider than mine) should weigh more. Even if his rims are less, there'* no way there'* a 50% difference.

Mine are 26x8.5x15. My tubes may add a pound at most if he doesn't have them.

Boosty filled his slicks with helium.

well, until both of you get a good scale to weight them, no one will know what the real weight is.

even if they are 10lbs more, still 36lbs is very light
