M/T ET Streets on Sald Shooters....What Tire Pressure?

I just got the M/T 26x11.5x16 on the sald shooters and wanted to know what tire pressure was safe to run at the track? I mean how low can I go without the tire spinning off? Also I know that lower tire pressure isn't always the best, but can I run as low as 12psi as I have read?

I run E.T. Streets all the time. (Every day) I run 20 psi on the street and 15 at the track , with excellent results.

The sald shooters are 16x8 and Im afraid of going to low at the track and having them spin off.

If the tires are going to stay on the rims , screw them on from the backside so as not to blemish the front side. At 15 psi , you shouldn't have any problems.

have been down to 12psi (fun on the top end) with screws front and back.
15 seems best for hook and soppeed while being stable on the top end

I marked the tire/rim with nail polish(small dots) and started at 19psi. At 16psi the car dead hooked on a 3500 dump and the rim spun(dots about an inch apart). Since then I run 17-18psi with out problems. For me 16 was the turning point but I havent found the need to pin them yet.
