MT ET R on Dyno

I just got a brand new set of MT ET R's in 305/45/18 and need to get my car on the dyno in a few days. I dont have a second set of wheels at the moment.

I've heard that putting those tires on a dyno will:

1. Eat up alot of the soft tread compound
2. Void any kind of warranty offered by MT.
3. Possibly skew numbers

https://mickeythompsontires.com/tech...-use-on-a-dyno

I've dyno'd several times with my previous MT ET Street SS drag radials and had zero problems. However these R's are much softer and pretty pricey.

Do you think I can get away with doing 3-4 pulls? Or should I find a loaner set of street tires?

Going to the same dyno I always use, but expect to make over 1000whp.

I appreciate peoples input, but do you have any experience with these tires? Have you put them on a dyno? I drive the mickeys every time I use the car. 99.9% street.

I'm thinking if I just air them up to 25psi so the sidewall doesnt crush, maybe it'll be ok.

I always dyno with my MT ET Street Rs. I want the car tuned on the same rubber I race on. Dozens of pulls, never a problem.
