Texas 2k is right around the corner and for the automotive enthusiast that have been living under a rock, Texas 2K is the Superbowl of racing and has been bringing the fastest vehicles around the country together for nearly 20 years. With all these high horsepower cars most are in the market to put that torque down to the ground. Fastmint looked out for everyone that’s still in the market for some sticky tires. Here are some great prices and links to some sticky tires.
Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R
The Potenza RE-71R is one of the most popular tires among car enthusiasts. This tire is great in a straight line as well as in the corners so it’s a great balanced tire. Recently I had a friend wreck his GTO (it’s back though) after leaving a car meet due to him having the wrong type of tires and ran into a rainstorm. With the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R’s you can have peace of mind rather it be a nice sunny sticky day or if you get caught up in some rain.

Toyo Proxes R1-R
The Toyo Proxes R1-R is one of the highest recommended tires within the car community. It’s an affordable sticky tire that won’t break the bank. Like the Bridgestone Potenza’s this is a great balanced tire that allows you to utilize them during multiple racing categories like drag and track. Even though the Toyo Proxes R1-R aren’t as pricey as many tires, they are as effective hooking-up off the line or entering and exiting corners. The Toyo Proxes R1-R offers excellent grip, sharp responses, outstanding steering feel as well as provide safety in wet conditions.
BFGoodrich g-Force Rival S 1.5
Even though this tire isn’t available in many sizes the g-Force Rival S 1.5 might be the best extreme-performance tire for straight-line traction in its class and comes at an affordable price
If you can find a size that suits your vehicle, though, we highley recommend these bad boys. The g-Force Rival S 1.5 provides truly exceptional traction which will help cut down your 0-60 foot times. The only negative thing that we have found is that a few people that have tested these have reported the tires becoming choppy after they reach about half wear.
Hoosier D.O.T. Drag Radial 2
Most people that are car enthusiasts don’t really need any introduction on the Hoosier D.O.T. Drag Radial 2. But for the ones that do there is no better street drag tire than the Hoosier Drag Radial 2. With a set of these tires mounted, you will be as competitive as it gets on a drag strip. They are only recommended for drag racing and give you the ultimate traction as compared to other D.O.T. Drag radial’s. These are not recommended for driving around on the street, cornering, and definitely not to be driven in the rain… You will lose control and more than likely wreck bae.
