    So, I have the 2019 Mustang GT A10. A little over 1k whp. I currently have on Et Street Rs and there is no way imaginable to hook on street from dig(haven't tried prep). Track is fine and 45 rolls and faster in warm weather are fine.
    I just ordered the Hoosier QTP bias ply and M&H front runners bias ply for my other set of rims. My buddy seems to really think that these will help me tremendously to hook on street. I also have a timing ramp tune Lund sent me to help also.

    So what do you guys think?
    Will it be easier to hook on digs on Street?
    Should I still do prep regardless?
    Would the radials or the bias ply do better at track for 60ft and et? (currently at a 1.5 60ft that is very consistent, but is killing me from being easy 8s.

    They might help on the street/poor track prep, but the radial will always be faster on the track if prep supports it. A bias/slick type tire is designed to controlled spin. A radial once it spins the slightest bit it does not recover well.

    A bias ply at 10-12 psi will usually hook better than a radial. But of course 99% of my experience is on a track. What do you have to loose by trying them.
