MEK is not a known or suspect carcinogen according to NTP, OSHA, or IARC (that doesn't mean it's known NOT to be carcinogenic though).

I have used M/T 28 x 10.5 and Hoosier 28x 10.5 and I think the Hoosier is a little better on the street.

Hoosier D05. I make my own mix for the street, but also like to try other stuff. So I have a gallon of ultra blue, chronic and pj1 in addition to the stuff I mix. I had the best results buying powdered pine rosin and melting it into the groove of the road(on tarmac), laying down a puddle of my traction compound and doing a couple burnouts. The pine rosin allows the rubber to stick to the surface and gives a nice rubber patch to launch on. The last little event I helped prep there were guys pullin 1-2 foot wheelies on a horrible tarmac surface.
