I don't think this is a specific question.  What I'm
saying is looking for a "dual purpose" is fine, just
don't expect to win or even be really competetive
unless you're a MUCH better driver.  If this isn't a
concern, then no prob.  This goes for street drag
racing, autocross or whatever.  He who goes for
purpose built, no street app. low life cycle tires
will usually win, all else being "nearly" equal.
