FWIW, the R7 has proved to be a rock-steady performer in standing mile events, and we have a number of participants who have logged many, many passes over 200 mph on them without a mishap.

I did not want to start a new thread, but I've read a TON of the tire threads and this seemed closest.

Yes, I have a rulebook, but specifically can a person show up to Bonneville with an R7? Current record in the likely class is 207.

On page 26, rule 2F states that "in excess of 200mph, special tires for racing as designated by the manufacturer".

It SEEMS like an R7 (in good shape, of course) would be allowed with no issue.

Car is a pony-type car, rwd, and should hopefully run in the 190s and might maybe possibly crack 200.

Thank you,

cars and such...
