impressive but the r888 is not a street tyre, it's a dot rated semi-slick race tyre

however perfectly street legal, so I'd say if you've got the cash then why not!

yes, but it's not a street tyre,

the numerous mentions of being on street tyres implied the other racers had an advantage wth their drag tyres etc.

Yeah it's a top level street tyre but not a specific drag tyre so he's at some disadvantage sure.

Street or not, that's impressive.



That said, Toyo list them as 'race tyres': http://www.toyo.co.nz/tyre/catalogue/race-tyres/proxes-r888
