Does anyone know where I can buy 275 Drag Radials in 1/25 scale? I know this Is probably the wrong place to post this but I figured I would get a better response from people that specifically build drag cars. Thanks

I asked about this MONTHS ago and was told they were being mastered....

That's why I went out in the garage last week and measured my 275-60-15's and have started doing the initial artwork for the tread and side cuts. I'm going to see if a stock car tire can be used as a basis, or if I'm carving tires and having them cast.

Mickey Thompson Pro E-T's are THE most popular tires on the streets today (followed by Hoosier & Nitto...) for muscle cars and NO ONE makes a set....

Maybe I should have kept this to myself until I was further along.

There was someone here that was casting them I think it was M.A.D. not 100 percent sure.

I had thought I read Speed City was doing them, just checked the site and they're not there.

I have 255s, 275s, and 315s. Can't seem to find any other pics, but here are the 275s on a car I'm doing and the others are identical just one is shorter/skinnier and one is taller/wider.

Thanks for the options guys... Dom im really interested in your drag radials and i think I've emailed you one time before about them. I am about to do a build similar to your Impala with a turbo and 275's on alky but with a 69 GTO.

The mad ones are a 275/60-15 size, but just two grooves in the tread similar to the Hoosier drag radials. They're pretty nice, I'm putting them on the rear of a 83 mustang gt weekend warrior.

The M-T's have a grooved edge besides the center grooves like the Hoosiers. Mad Dog's web site is down.

also, as in real life, the hoosiers are actually wider than the M/T ones. the radials i made are similar to the M/T design and are based of actual tire size. i make the models at 1:1 scale and sclae down to whatever size i need instead of trying to convert all dimensions down to a set 1/24 or 25th scale. i plan on making a set of hoosier style tires soon as well. mainly because nearly every 275 car out there now runs them, well the race cars at least.

Dom, do you make the turbos as well? If so would you be putting any on the market?

Yes I made the turbo. I'm not starting a business or opening any online shop, but if people want some of the parts I can make them. Shoot me an email at doms87ss@yahoo.com.
