They are Towel City 10.5 - 29.5 two groove cheaters. I put them on so its "street legal". I think I was running about 20lbs in them when I tried them at the track last fall, so quite a bit more air than with modern slicks.

I had the same ones on my willys pickup and you will need to run 35-40 psi in them to get the full contact of the tread width remember those are radial tires and have been recapped if you run that low of tire pressure it will cup them in the center and there wonít be any traction they are exact opposite of a bias tire more pressure gives a better tread contact patch try airing them up and giving it a go it will be way better also with more pressure they will last a whole lot longer on the street as well I put 40,000 miles on mine and never had any issues with them Iíve known others who run lower pressure but they had issues of separation

Thanks, that makes sense, the tire marks did indicate cupping. Since they are radial I figured I would run pressure similar to what I do with drag radials but sounds like I need to increase pressure more.

We're working on it. Chute mount and release handle mounted (thanks Chuck), engine/trans back in. Facing a steep learning curve on the fuel injection plumbing and alcohol.
