    57.jpg Has any of you had a chance to try out these M & H nostalgic drags slicks
    they look like something that was a cheater slick back in the days
    or maybe they would been used in Junior stock or modified / production
    the largest I have seen is 92" dia 7" tread width 10.3 sec. width this is their 9.00 x 15"
    I have a set of mt's on my 57 28 x 10.5 x 15
    I was wondering how well these hook
    I can still go back to my leaf springs as the hanger brackets are still there
    How tall would these be 29" or 30"would work
    I run a 57 ford ranchero rear under the car its 57.25"
    If they only had a 10"

    I think you mean 29" diameter, not 92".
    That's a tractor tire.

    if they are the same ones they sold 5 years ago, then yeah, I've been using them. A link or part number would help confirm what exactly you're talking about, though.

    Only a partial answer but if they're 92" (and I think you might mean circumference, not diameter?) they would be ~29.3" tall (diameter) 92 divided by 3.14 = 29.299" But, maybe I misunderstood something.

    https://www.cokertire.com/vintage-drag-slicks.html (MVD007, track use only)
    I was looking at them however $250 per tire, the G60/15 (DoT approved, MS003) has a height of 26.2", rollout of 82" and 7.8" width compared to 29.5" tall, rollout of 92" and 7" width.
    JEGS (Free shipping) & SUMMIT have them cheaper than Coker.

    yes they are about 7" wide tread, and yeah they hook. You shouldn't be able to run a 9 with them, eh? :) (that pass pictured above was a 9.96)
