My slicks HAVE to be cleaned in the bleaches even if they are ok as when i get to the front of the queue I have half of the pits area stuck to them Smile

Weird...I was saying the complete opposite.

Even after a pass with the ET Streets, when I parked up again the tyres were spotless.
The Radials were full of stones.

Ha Ha!!
I misread that.

I never really had the stones issue with my BFG Drag Radials. I've always had this issue with the MT slicks.

The BFG's would be at the more "road" end of the radials.

Then Nitto's, then MT's and then Hoosiers.

Been years since I used the Nitto's, so dont recall what they were like. Not super soft though, but still a very very good tyre.
