If they need tube to ride on the street they are strictly a race tire. you said yourself they are not dot certed. A drag tire usually gets changed after 3-4 passes depending on the time and length of burn out on the street you would be lucky to get more than 1-200 miles out of them. However if you run drag radials that are steel belted which there are quite a few companys that are making them now M&H, Hoosier , B.F.Goodrich , Nitto , etc. most are dot legal and you can get 1000-2000 miles out of them depending on how heavy your foot is. If you nail them at every light they don't last on the street because they are soft compound an do exactly what they are designed to do which is BITE!!!
