Drag radials/Slicks

I was just wondering who here runs Drag Radials or Slicks. To the people who do, what size? what brand? and where did you get them? Thanks much.

I have run both Nitto and BFG drag radials on my focus.

The nittos were 205-50R14 mounted on stock steelie rims. They were to small IMHO to do much with. Probably fine if running with bolt ons.

I have also used BFG 225-50R15 mounted on aftermarket focus 15" rims. Much better traction.

i have the same 14in nittos. very nice and more important to me, more consistant. the 15s in my opinion were too short and put in an odd spot for my 1/8mi runs where shift pts were concerned.

Where is a good place to look for them online? There aren't any places around where I live that you can by them from (Any type of racing tire that is)
