Has anyone on here tried the PBR yet and was it with a beadlock wheel or not. because I know you can't run screws and I tried a set and the tire is just spinning on the wheel. i want to see how they work. but it looks like I'm going to need to beadlock my wheel first

My first time out with the Pro Bracket Radials was the Ford race at U S 60.My junk was 1.21 60 ft with no bead locks.I know that is not as quick as a lot of others but i was more than pleased with mine.

From what I hear, pressure needs to be higher than a bias slick. Maybe low pressure is causing a weak bead bond?

Pretty sure I'm going to get a set after this season is over to try starting next year. Have heard good things about them, and would like to give them a shot.

You have a very nice car! Don't sell it short. It runs great. a 1.21 60 is noting to sneeze at. That was on a hot daytime track. Smile

Thanks. The old car was running pretty good that weekend, but the driver was slacking off. Struts are 3 clicks from full tight.

Guy I did a pontiac for is planning on running 315 pro-radials. He bought wheels off Larry Hodge I beleive .Instead of the bead locks, money factor, he did an option where they knurled the inside lips of the wheel along the bead. It might have been a $30 option for each wheel, dont quote me on that. His will be a high 8 second car. He was told to glue them with the knurled being it's not a super fast deal.

Update. First outing all new car, foot braking th-400 3 speed trans all motor ....1.22 - 60ft no evidence of slipping the wheel on the rim. Will try to keep track of it a little better once he starts using the t-brake. This was after the 3rd pass on the car, no tweaking and no adjusting yet. These tires seem fast so far @ 18lb of air.
