    In regards to the tire conversion it’s basically an Australian law that’s getting in the way if the radials had a load rating it would be fine. In fact the drag radials most guys race on are DOT (Department of Transportation) approved in the USA so in the US they are street legal, just not here.

    So the above argument is somewhat a grey area, because the same can be said about many car mods, such as exhaust too loud, doesn’t meet emission, aftermarket camshaft the list goes on and on

    So if the argument is “hang on let me change my tires before I race” then also consider the other non legal mods.
    In the grand scheme of things the tires are DOT approved and you’re less likely to be ticketed for them than other mods, I’ve driven to the track on them many people do.

    Looking for colder IATs? weve achieved 11c IAT2 on a 41c day and -8c during winter.
    We have proven cabin AC vent temps are better than GM spec, both IAT2's and vent temps are all on video with nothing to hide.

    I think the Nitto drag radial tires might have a load rating.
    The compound isnt as good as Mickey Thompson but it will work as a drag radials and if it has a load rating as I think it does it street legal.
