    M/T Sportsman Pro Tires

    Post  kartmaster on Thu Sep 05, 2013 10:35 pm

    Mr. Admin here had asked me what size tires I was running on my car.  I believe I promised him that answer yesterday... Embarassed 

    Never-the-less, here you go.  Mickey Thompson 29x12.50-15LT is size.  Afraid I can't offer any info on rim width or backspacing at this time.  I'd need to take some measurements for that as I didn't purchase these wheels myself.

    Already I need to correct myself, I had been referring to these tires as "drag radials", while they are infact bias ply tires. So take that into consideration for what it's worth.

    Let me know if you have any questions.  And I'll do my best to answer them!
