Slicks are not legal or recommended for street driving and some of my bud's say drag radials aren't much better if you get caught in the rain. Put them on at the track!

No, but with Micky Thompson ET Street Radials you can.
Hoosier makes one thats says DOT but you can not actually drive it on the street. Made for class racing.

I currently am running the ET street R’s on my snowflake 17’s on the street….when I go to my 15’s with the radial slicks for the track I was wondering if I could put them on at the house and drive out to the track or I would have to load them up and put them on at the track …or need to bring a jack and all the tools and all that

Legal?? Meh hahaha

I drive to the track on my m/t 275 radial pro's. Im only 4 miles away though. They work great by the way. Best 60' of 1.49. Used to have m/t 10.5x 28 stiff sidewall slicks. The radials liked a way tighter front shock setting than the slicks. Took a while to figure them out, but glad I did. Stable down track. Slightly faster et.

I drive my ET Street S/Ss on the street. I do not like driving the car in the rain under any circumstances because the wipers are trash, but Ive been caught in the rain and its not really any worse than 550+ HP on your average Cooper Cobra or other white letter 15" tire.

Skinnies up front can pick up time-even more than the weight reduction due to less rolling resistance. I did it at the track back to back.
