I need one or the other. Both are so far near to imposible to find, the 15.5 are easier to find so far. I know the 14.9 put more rubber down but my theory was when the track gets dug up with 14.9 ruts my 15.5 would have more of a chance of not getting stuck on them. I found a real good deal on 15.5, think i should try them or pass it up?

Kevin, what kind of 13.6 X 38"s? Matched set ? Would maybe trade 14.9 x 38"s for them. Let me know.

If you had to buy new tires would the 14.9 be worth the extra money? I hate to pull new tires but there sure isn't an abundance of 14.9 tires around.

Sure, if I could find a good used set of 15.5's I would run them over new 14.9's. Rather have the 14.9's. If I have to buy new ones, it will probably be 14.9 unless I find 15.5's much cheaper. $500 each really hurts.

If you decide to go with some new ones, I think I can come up with a set of Firestone Super All Traction 23 Degree II for about $300 each. They are ususlly 15.5s and blems, but who cares if a letter on the sidewall didn"t come out right? They are some good pulling tires.

I live in Bradford, Arkansas. We're about 100 miles West of Memphis, TN, 70 miles Northeast of Little Rock, AR or 90 miles South of Thayer, MO. Let me check and see if I can still get them. My brother runs a set on his Case DC and they do real well.

Actually firestone has three different 15.5's with each having a different size.B F Goodrich has some also along with co-op and air preasure plays a huge role. There are different side wall constructions aome will wrinkle some wont.Yes its a nightmare and takes awhile to figure it out. Good Luck!! and you need to e-mail me about price !!!

I don't have alot of time to read this crap , your not pulling on ice, your pulling in the dirt !

new tire in division (1) first gear never work , the bar roles over ! 14.9 on a 13" RIM WILL OUT PULL A 15.5 ON 14"IN, ALL THINGS BEING THE SAME.

fIND AND OLD PAIR OF TIRES WITH A SHARP LEADING EDGE, AND A FULL BAR ALL THE WAY ACROSS !

15.5 OR 14.9, NEITHER MATTER BECAUSE YOUR BEST FRIEND DRESSED HIS !

GET IN THE GAME , PAY ATTENTION ! , TO WHAT YOUR FRIENDS ARE DOING !!!

LET ME ESPLAIN THIS A LITTLE MORE

HOW DOES A WIDE TIRE DO ON 6" of snow and ice, verses a narrower tire, !!!!!

now, the wide tire does alot better, taking a high speed turn, but your pulling not drag racing !!!

hello !!!!!!!!!!!!11

i'm taking my time building a motor , but you'll never beat me on traction!

Aso don't ever forget about balance ! the last thing i must say !
AT THE END OF THE PULL, YOU WANT 99PERCENT OF THE WEIGTH ON THE DRIVE TIRES AND 1PERCENT ON THE FRONT END !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

So are you trying to say i am better off getting my 13.6 38 cut? Now there isnt any cutting allowed in the classes i run but isnt there a way to cut em with no body knowing? The 15.5 38 i found are pretty good looking though. I found em in the photo adds. Any one ever deal with a Loren Redd from ohio? I normaly dont buy stuff out of state that i send money before i see it but im giving this a try and im just alittle nervouse. Im just alittle nervouse that i am sending a money order to his adress but he said to have it written to this other guy and he wasnt even sure of the other guys adress. Im not to familuar with out of state purchases but do you think this sounds safe?
