We've got Goodyears, M/T's, Hoosiers and Morosos on various cars down here...nobody complains. If it was me, I'd decide based on price and weight.

I just bought new tires and wheels. I looked at Hoosiers and m/t and they both claim to weigh 11#. I ended up with m/t wheels and tires with a big weight savings on the front spindle mount/ front runner setup over the weld star and 165 radial. Every pound counts!  Cool

You can start by trimming back some of the excess material on the front motor plate. Weight from excess 1/4" aluminum plate adds up damn quick.
