I've been an M&H fan since I put a set of 17" Racemasters on my vette back in 2013

 

That said... they've been around (unchanged?) since 2013+

 

MT seems to have revamped their line up with the ET Street S/S and they've been out in the wild for a season or so now.

 

For 100% roll racing street use, is the ET Street S/S now better than the M&H?

 

I don't care about treadwear, water handling, road noise etc.

Yep, hands down especially at high speed (180+) so much more stable and less “floaty” (if that’s an actual word).

I find can use more psi in the MT and still get the traction.

I've gone 182mph at 20psi on m&h and it was totally stable, but if it's got more grip too I'll have to try a set. Are they pretty consistent in sizing from distributors, or do you need to order direct for exact awd sizes?

I’ve never heard of anyone having a mismatched size.

Just don’t use them on the dyno ;(

It does seem like they turned the S/S into a 'street' tire vs. a 'streetable' tire.  Do you have experience running both on a GTR?

Sorry. Bit of topic.
How "much" do Drag Radials (M&H or M/T) degrade the handling of this car compared to a tire like the Toyo R888R?

I've taken twisty roads on my drag radials and it's been ok. It's also been stable at high speeds.  Just makes it drive like a normal passenger car is the best comparison maybe?
