    Does anyone here run the MT sportsman 28 X 10.5 x 15 tires on an 8" rim on a Duster with no mods? I am trying to decide on a L-60x 15 or this tire.

    The Mccreary L-60x15 is 10.8 wide section width with 9.5 tread and 28 " tall.

    the Sportsman 28x10.5x 15 is 11.2 section width with 8.3 tread and 28" tall.

    Unfortunately i dont want to spin the entire quarter mile when i do street race it. These tires i listed will hook when you get on it.

    Don't know fitment.I can tell you the size you want,doesn't require tubes.They hook well,bounce around like slicks at top end when aired down. Sportsman is standard non wrinklewall,Sportsman Pro ,wrinklewall.I always ran the Pros.

    Id run a drag radial over those. I went from a 325-50-15 Hoosier quick time to a 275-60-15 M/T drag radial, It hooked better and drove better.
