Not a DOT tire.
I'm working on getting them in the states but don't hold your breath.
Have a meeting with Toyo next Friday and that's a topic I'm going to as about.

Joe that would be amazing if you could do some "persuading." Do you know if the cost will be similar to a normal RA1?

Had a meeting with Toyo this morning about a variety of topics. I asked about the RR1 and RS1. Right now they're a Prototype Tire being tested in Europe and Asia. They are not available for sale anywhere.
Maybe in a year or 2 or 3.
