Used drag radials

Postby nightster » Fri Apr 17, 2015 2:08 pm

Would yall buy used drag radials? Found the exact ones I'm looking for on craigslist. 275/40r17 mt et streets.he says they are practically brand new and then he says the 1000 miles on them. Thats quite a few for that soft of a tire if I'm not mistaken. Hes asking $420 for both, I can get 2 new ones for $450ish shipped. Obviously I wouldn't give him $420 for them but was curious on yalls take on used drag radials.

My first pair of DRs for this car were some used 555rs. Worked great(when I was na). Look at the wear bars and look for any patches.

Those look like MT streets. If so, then they don't have much wear at all.
