Since we all run the same tires, it wouldn't really matter if we run
street tires instead of race tires, legends do it. But you'll soon
hear a cacophony of complaints that it would be too slow and make the
class completely boring and a laughing stock. I don't entirely
disagree with that. Nice to embarrass some cars that have a higher
level of prep.
I think so long as we have a 13" R-compound tire available to us at
sub-ludicrous prices, we should stick to them. As far as I know,
there are still at least two readily available, and they are still
cheaper than their 15"+ counterparts.
If we really wanted to follow where tires are going, we'd be running
17" or larger...
