Cool! Are you gonna use those tires as daily drivers? If so let us know how they hold up.
No, I bought them for an event. I DD on Nitto 555R2s which are 100 threadwear road race tires, and I see 7 - 9K miles out of a set, so I burn throughn 3 - 4 sets a year. These would last half as long, possibly less, and they also make the car handle like crap (the biggest issue with DRs), so they are for special occasions only.

Thanks. Yeah, its got approx 800 crank HP. It is a built LS2 engine, all forged internals with a ZR-1 camshaft and a Novi 1500 supercharger pushing 15PSI. Car dynoed 700RWHP / 580RWTQ.

I'll bet the tires will be fun hooking up the power at speeds under 60 mph. :)

Seems like the license plate is an invitation to get challenged more. I would have expected you to have gotten a 700 HP plate and avoid the guessing about SAE. ;)

I would but 99% of the people I've spoken to about the subject don't have any understanding of what power at the wheels or driveline loss means...
