Got my Nitto 275 DR's mounted & on the car today. Taking the car back to the track tonight hopefully.

I have heard some people report that brand-new Nitto Drag radials are not the best for traction until they are broken-in. What is done to "break them in"???

Or is this BS, and I can expect super-stickiness after a good burn-out @ 14 - 18 psi????

Just make sure to heat them up A LOT. Once you ring out quite a few deep heat cycles in them, they grip damn good. Without heating them up though, you can get just a good 60ft's with F1's.

Heat Cycling:

The Dealer can have the factory heat cycle them for you. This works much better than trying to do it by burnouts.

I had mine cycled by Nitto, and I've got almost 8K miles on them, and I think I'll get another 5K, and a bunch of burnonuts and passes too.
