Nexen 165/80r15

I have ordered the Nexen tires I need for the 15" x 4" Summit wheels. Funds are tight, but these were on sale so I grabbed a pair for my project car. The front wheels and tires are taken care of, I'm going to have to save my pennies for the rear tires now. I'm going to go with a P 275 /50R15 size tire for the rear. I'm still waffling on which tire to buy. The two I'm looking at are the Mickey Thompson ET Street radial and the BFGoodrich T/A Drag Radial. From what I have read so far, the M/T ETs hook better than the BFGs, but the BFGs last longer. Since my car is way underpowered right now I'm guessing that how the tire hooks will not matter as much at my power level. So I'm leaning toward the BFGs, but I'm still researching both tires. I have read that the NMRA (National Mustang Racing Association) Factory Stock 2 valve guys run on the BFG drag radials and they are in the deep 11 second range.

Another note, still working on the garage so I can get my baby out of the weather and work on it. I know, I'm slack. I'll try and do more out there since the weather is getting nicer.
