Default Best DOT Legals for Weekend Warrior

What are the best DOT legal tires out there for running at the strip? I want to get more into drag racing this summer and want to give myself every advantage I can.

Truck is in my signature.

Are you actually planning on driving these tires on the street or are you just looking for DOT legal tires?

Looking for just DOT legal. Truck would be trailered or I'd throw them on at the track.




One of the tracks here has a rule about their "street" nights that all tires must be DOT legal.

30x14 m&h cheater is DOT legal. Hard to beat. There are some drag radials out there that would work as well but the cheater is hard to beat.

30" tall the proper size for a 3.73 geared truck? Should make ~900-1000hp once she fires up and gets tuned in.

30x14 worked very well for my full weight crew cab.

I went 10.5 @ 132 on the 30x14 with stock 3.73s. Most of the drag radials are 28-29" and will require you to turn some extra RPMs if you are trpping 120+. Guys have done it but I think the taller tire works a little better with stock gearing.

325/45r18 Hoosier DR2s are roughly 1/4” taller then the 30x14 cheaters and work very well. Seen 1.5s with them at 6700lbs both are great options though.
