Is there a drag radial that fits well under the back end of a Dakota? The stock tires are 29", so I was trying to stay near that. I was thinking of sticking them on 15x7" aluminum base model wheels.

I was wanting to stay with a narrow tire anyway. The only drag radials I can find that are close in height (for "street tire" racing) are 275/60/15 at about 28" tall. They're not really what I'm looking for. Too wide, too short, and too heavy I think. So I started looking at slicks and found 29.5x9x15 MT's which sound really good size wise - but wouldn't be legal in most of the cheesy street car bracket classes around here.

Thanks for the replies.

My truck has 255/65/16s on it which work out to 29.05" tall.

I didn't want the rear tires shorter than the front (reverse rake is bad) and I also didn't want a bigger/heavier tire than I need for traction with a stock truck, like the 275/60 tires. I'm just looking at increasing traction a little for bracket racing and running for fun at street tire events while not wasting my all season tires.

I didn't know M&H made a 275/55/16 tire.

What do you have to do to recalibrate the speedo in these trucks? Can they take care of that at a dealership? Or do I have to buy a programmer? I wouldn't mind dropping a tire size all the way around for my street tires, but I'd like my speedo to be correct.
