    Wondering if any of you guys have tried using an ET front or Moroso DS2 tire in the front vs a MT sportmans tire. I currently have 28" sportmans on my 17x4.5 F14s. The advantage of going to one of the 2 above would be gaining (or dropping) 10lbs per front corner. Just wondering, lets hear your thoughts.

    Yea I think I’ll go for the 26.5” MT. Weight savings are very good compared to the sportmans.

    I run the phoenix fx fronts and couldn't say enough good things about them. under 13 lbs and they are awesome on the street and track. I was recommended them by the guys on yellowbullet, they have a good reputation on there. the price is nice too. https://www.jegs.com/i/Phoenix-Drag-Tires/932/PH427/10002/-1
