    Road legal track tyres

    Anyone looked into running these on their car. With all that rubber should really increase grip, although could be bad in the wet.

    Yes, Toyo do a good range of them. Given the dry use only nature of my old Trans Am and suspension mods I was going to run a set but couldn’t get them in a suitable size.
    As with any upgrade, it will exploit the next weakness. In this case likely to be something related to the sprung components of the suspension. I imagine rubber bushings will deflect more and wear prematurely and likewise with ball joints.
