You know you can always count on the “Tennessee Mafia” when it comes to covering all the bases for your tire needs. Phoenix Racing Tire is the performance division of Coker Tire Company providing top-of-the-line tires geared towards the drag racing community. They produce a wide variety of sizing options for slicks, along with a range of tires in both bias ply and radial styles.
One of their newest products they recently introduced is a lightweight D.O.T. approved front runner built to fit 17-inch wheels. These finely crafted skinnies were made in order to cater to modern muscle and high performance cars featuring large factory disc brakes. The profile of the tire ensures brake system clearance and weight reduction. Be sure to check out the video above to learn a bit more straight from the mouth of one of the “Tennessee Mafia’s” very own and to get a closer look at their fine products.
Mike Crutchfield of Phoenix Tires tells us about their new tires’ many beneficial applications, “We’ve got five different front sizes that are now DOT approved for our weekend warrior guys that want to drive to the racetrack or go to the steak and shake on the weekends. It’s for hot rods or drag race fronts, it’ll serve both purposes.”
According to Crutchfield another one of their recent drops that they’re most proud of is their drag race radial geared towards stock, super stock, and comp eliminator cars.
