well since they are not avilable in the States all I can really say is that the 1 race tire Dunlop brought ot the US market was very disappointing when compared to other race tires ... it wasn't that much better than max performance street tires on the market if at all

Street legal in the rest of the wrold does not mean street legal here; AKA D.O.T.

AFAIK those tires are not sold in the U.S. so they are probably not D.O.T. approved.
