As far as I understand the speed ratings are more about the tires ability to deal with certain levels of heat for extended periods of time. Given that a 1/2 mile run is relatively short I don't think any of the tires will have much of a prolonged heat issue, whereas lapping on the road course could cause some issues for sure. To drive that point home I (unfortunately) know of many guys running what are essentially VW beetle front radials as "skinnies" on drag cars that run 170+ in the 1/4 mile. Never seen a blow out but the whole thing is over in 7-8 seconds.



That's interesting. What size NT05, the 275/35-20?

yes

He was comparing apples to oranges. I compared apples to apples.

To say that r888's are "garbage" is ridiculous. There is no perfect tire and each has their +&-'s.

I wasn't comparing apples to oranges. I was making a statement based on the comment made
"213 a little slow for a A16 not ?"
"well I have no idea about all that but 216 sure ain't 233 like the lambos.. what would T1 do ?"

Referring to Spachmans 213 being slow because of what the ugr x and t1 shop cars run. Those builds simply can't be compared
