Nice choice. I love those tires!!!! Pricey though.Thanks Austin that is a killer idea, I am hoping to run 7-8" pie crust slicks
A GREAT SITE with lots of info about the tires & the re-treading process.I don't know anything about these, but might be worth checking out.http://http://www.towelcityracingtires.com/Pie_Crust_Cheater_Slicks.html.....Blue
Hurst doesn't use new casings on their rear slicks John. Their casings are hand picked to ensure good quality used, and they only use one brand and model. I think Cody told me they were Wrangler casings.Hurst (and others) are selling cheater slick recaps just like the ones made "back in the day"...... except they are on brand new radials. $385/pair .....
I think I read or someone told me one of the companies that make recap cheater slicks uses "Cooper Tires" for their casings. I have a hot rod buddy whose has purchased a few sets from the place in North Carolina & he has been very pleased with them.Hurst doesn't use new casings on their rear slicks John. Their casings are hand picked to ensure good quality used, and they only use one brand and model. I think Cody told me they were Wrangler casings.
If hooking up is your primary concern, then I would choose the M&H Drag Radial over any of the recap slicks. M&H doesn't make a traditional piecrust slick, but their Drag Radial is the best of the three when it comes to traction. It's also the only one of the three to have a DOT rating for the highway, and will not overheat at highway speeds. And they are the lightest vs. any of the reecapped tires.It will be a toss up Hurst ,Towelcity and M H racemaster. I want to use the brand that hooks the best.
I remember getting a set of slicks on rims from a 63 nova the following sizes.I have a 65 nova with stock width rear end. What is the max size slick that any other nova owners are running with out doing a mini tub?
