Had my mind made up to buy BFG Drag radials for my Mach 1, but now I'm starting to re-think that decision due to the limited 3000 - 5000 mile life-span of the BFG's.
So, for those that have used either the BFG's or the Nitto drag radials:

How many miles did you get from them before they needed to be replaced?

What were your 60' times with either tire?

I'm especially interested in hearing from anyone who has used Nitto's, then switched to BFG's (or vice versa.)

Example: Did you get 1.6 60' times with the BFG's, but only 1.8's - 1.9's with the Nitto's??
Or is the traction difference not that much?

Where will you be using the mach the most or which is more important to you, street or strip?
Street..........go with Nitto
Strip............go with BFG

To get Nittos to hook at the strip, you HAVE to heat them up!

I have Nittos currently and will switch to BFG or slicks after they are gone!

31 splines are in my future!

Ended-up ordering the Nittos, as they will see street duty frequently.

Maybe later, I'll get some BFG's or ET streets just for the track to get the best possible 60' times.

The Nitto's are 275/40R-17's, and cost $320.00 a pair (w/free shipping) from Discount Tire Direct.

I had the same tires on my '01 Cobra, and they did pretty well on the street & provided 1.8 - .19 60' times with my so-so driving skills.
