Looking at last years GRR Section 4, I see that it specifically calls for DOT tires for the tarmac event, but makes no mention of them on the sand events. I know that *wink wink* the tires must be DOT to be ridden on the street, but is that checked in tech?
Don't worry about tires from a DOT angle...it wont be an issue. you might be surprised...a TW ridden to its fullest will likely not come in last.
