At the National level, guys will run the tires that work.

Don't get me wrong, the DW is a great tire - I have them on my CTS-V and they do everything well. But for raw grip they can't match the Star Spec (or the various other extreme performance tires that are basically designed specifically for Street Touring competition).

Tis' true but that is why they make more than one type of tire. You have to bust out the facts huh?

There is also contigency points for dunlop and not conti correct?? That would sway me to run them if I was competing nationally. I also don't run in any st class either.

I tried the star specs and personally didn't like them. That's all I was getting at.
