    I always ran Mickey drag radials on my Cobras for the best traction, although the Nittos I tried lasted the longest....

    Drag radials will get you killed on the street and no offense but if you lost your license only two years ago odds are you are not mature enough to be running DRs or even driving a Cobra for that matter. Good luck, please consider becoming an organ donor.

    Thank you for proving my point sir, have a fun and safe 4th of July. I have also had a Mustang since I was 16, do we get cookies or something?
