I meant like road, track, drags.

For the street, just garden variety Kumho Ecsta for me, 235/45/17, basically because they were cheap and get the job done.

On the track car Nitto NT01, pretty much the same reason.

For the strip, Mickey Thompson Sportsman, because I needed a crossply to run with the slicks on the back and these were the cheapest option. Otherwise the Kumhos above if I'm running the drag radials on the back.

245/40/18 Kumho KU36 - nice street / track compromise if you don't have moola for a dedicated track set. I also ran Nitto NT01's - wicked grip but crap mileage - the Kumhos sacrifice a bit of track grip, but give me good confidence in the wet on the street (meaning I can leave a wet stop sign without the outrageous tyre spin ��)
