It’s hard to believe that tire technology continues to evolve with tread patterns, materials, construction technology and more in the name of performance and safety. However, M&H Racemaster has recently launched a new Radial Drag Tire that is truly innovative in its approach to working in concert hand with the suspension.
The new M&H Camber Radial Drag tire features two degrees of camber built into the tread profile. Yes, the tread profile actually has camber built into itself! This is designed for modern performance cars equipped with an independent rear suspension to help work through traction and wheel hop issues. As the suspension compresses camber is altered. This tire’s cambered tread profile allows the contact patch to be completely flat when the suspension compresses, a never-before-seen approach.
The engineers at M&H have done extensive testing to ensure the tires are safe, and perform better than a standard drag radial tire. The end result is a DOT-approved drag tire that significantly increases traction, while offering superior vehicle stability, even tread wear, longer tire life and reduced rolling resistance. These tires were initially designed for drag racing, but also work well on autocross cars, as well as full road race cars, where extreme camber settings are generally used.
Available sizing for the initial run of M&H Camber Radial Drag tires is 245/45R17 and 245/40R18, but more sizes are in the works. The tires feature a tubeless design that works well for Ford Mustangs, Chevy Camaros and many other applications using 17- or 18-inch wheels. These tires can be used on the front or rear, or on all four corners, depending on the application.
The new Camber Radial Drag Tire is available at Coker Tire Company, the world’s leading supplier of collector vehicle tires and wheels. For more information check out www.mandhdragtires.com or contact M&H Racemaster tires.
