Average life you get out of them?

Hows the traction on the street and strip?

Hows the ride quality? Smooth or a bit bumpy?

How are they in the rain, even when driving normal and not crazy? From 1-10.....1 being there totally fine and are ok.

10 being that there horrible and scary to the point your white knuckling the steering wheel and calling the wife and kids on the phone to let them know you love them and not sure if your gunna make it home.

5 being that there manageable but a little unpredictable slip here and there but can still make it through the wet streets.

I have nitto 555r2 drag radials and in the rain they are just fine and don't make me nervous so since hearing the Mickeys are stickier I'm gunna assume they won't tolerate the wet as well as a compromise but I'd like to get a general idea as to how they are?

Short sidewall because you have them in a 305-35-20?

How many miles have they lasted you?

I duno if your stock or not but can you hook a 2nd gear 30 and 40 mph roll hit with them?
When my car was stock, I could dead hook a 1st gear 20mph roll (in warm months) with 305 35 20 street ss's

Thats what I like to hear dam those tires must be good, that gives me a good general idea on how well the traction is. How were they in the wet? Since your not stock now are you still running them or perhaps you are with more sidewall to hook?
Wet traction was ok. Only got stuck with them in the rain a couple of times. I took it slow and had no issues. Would definitely proceed with caution especially near the end of life of the tire.
I make 900whp now and those tires would not work under 70mph. Switched to 305 45 18 ET street R's
Oh and I got about 8k miles out of the SS. That said, I didn't go to the track and did very little dig runs on the street. A whole lot of 20+mph WOT runs though. Burnouts and launches from a stop will chew them up quick
