Should've just got 15x10s and ran slicks if you're just doing a rear set for the track.

Less tread = more contact patch

They are still good radials for the track. I just would to drive them on the street in any sub-par weather.

Amd if you are making any kind of power. Then the 05rs suck when they get worn out. They hook real dam good when u first get them.

Actually after looking at those closer, they do look like NT01s the slightly curved lines on the half of the tire are what the 01s have....

Except if those are an NT01 they aren't a drag radial, they are a road race tire.
