I ran drag radials on SSExi for a few years, didn't really care for them much. I found they reacted funny when I hit cracks in the road. Caused the car to pull funny side to side. They also wont last very long because your steering with them as well as being the driven wheels. They also suck if you don't have them up to temp.

That will work OK then. But for daily driving, they are a bit soft.
