Would buying a set of drag radials, such as the Nitto NT555R hurt handling performace over a tire such as the Nitto NT555?

I'm sure that they would grip better, but I don't know whether drag specific tires like these might be lacking something that typical tires have to reduce sidewall roll in cornering.

Xander has the regular 555s on his car. Maybe the carcass is the same? Is so, they are really stiff
