? makes a tire DOT

I want to race in some street legal drags and they say the tires must be DOT approved,so what is the standard ? Do MT s/r drag radials fit there or are they considered a sticky tire ?

Re: ? makes a tire DOT

The MT Sportsman SR's are a DOT tire but they will not hook like the ET Street bias ply or drag radial.

The ET street's are also DOT approved.

Mickey Thompson's are a fine choice. Hoosier's are good as well. Scroll down to D.O.T. Drag radial http://www.hoosierracingtire.com/spe...0Drag%20Radial

If the Mfg. puts a DOT stamp on it then it's been tested and approved by the DOT and should be legal in that class.
