You have no clue then what a CUP tire is... They are nothing like the GTR or other 'Normal' high performance street tire, offered on BMW's and other performance machines.

A CUP tire is a 6/32nd, 80 Treadware DOT legal race tire.

The GTR, and other standard performance street tires on these other cars are 10/32 200 Treadwear rated tires... and in the GTR's case... even a Runflat!
