Nice little piece, 1 question tho, I don't mean to put anything here down, but wouldn't that more of a Pro-Street tire then a drag slick/Pro-Stock tire, it still has the "tread" from the sides of the cap, you would have to sand those ridges down or fill them in somehow (putty or something), they do look cool & would be easier (cheaper) then buying a set of tires.

The tread looks like it might be good for sand buggies, nothing for the tarmac would use "tread" like that, but also there is no sidewall arc. I don't think I have ever seen a car tire without a bit of bulge to the sides. It looks a bit two-dimensional, and awfully tall.

I think it would be fun to do if you were building a toy for a kid or something, looks too childish. Thanks for sharing anyway.
