A lot of people will run their cars on drag radials (R2 compound) or true slicks (whether nylon belted or bias ply) when dyno'ing on dual-roller units and be surprised when the tires are ruined in like 30 seconds of pulling. The heat generated by low air pressure or high load weight is remarkable. The only time you can REALLY get away with it on the street is on a 15 - 16" wheel where theres lots of material to transfer the heat to. But, if you drove down the street on ET Street Radials @ 10 psi on a 15" you'd melt them in a few miles too.
