They are street tyres. Dunlop Formula R. Sure they are a competition style tyre but a few things I should point out are
1. They are not a drag radial of any kind
2. They are 50 series profile (definitely not drag)
3. They are no better than what you get as standard fitment on an STi

So yes they are the same tyre that the boys call 'semi-slick' but they are far from optimum. I only managed a 1.94s 60ft with my super button clutch. lol All that said they hook up quite well and maxpsi should really invest in some!

Thanks Luke - Either way, it's incredibly impressive.

I was more just wondering to see if that time was on those tyres, and what more u can expect with slicks.

1. Andy you are a wanker- that made perfect sense
2. Rob you would not whoop one on any amount of boost with a GT35
3. Andy- refer point 1.
