    Hmm, over inflated maybe? Cooler temperature outside? I mean they are drag radials so I am not sure how well they will treat you in comparison to stock Pirelli tires in regards to traction and regular driving without them being heated up. I am keeping the stock tires on the rear and when I get to the drag strip I will switch out to 305/45/18 MT ET Rs.

    Probably a little greasy as they are new... Just watch a set in use 2 Saturdays ago. They worked great!

    Brother,

    Be careful, those tires are meant for driving to and from the track and racing the car at the track. Do not drive them on the street for everyday use. I am told they are not good in the rain. I am trying to make sure you keep the shiny side up on the car ;);););););););););););)
