Reasonable explanation.

As long as those tyres are road-legal and can pass MOT (or whatever the local acronym for technical inspection is in Japan), its fine.

Even though tyres have huge effect on laptimes, I still think that they are external to the car itself - they are consumables, like oil, brake pads etc.

I will add a note saying that car had MPSC2s.

I think this time should not be deleted but changed to the "mods" section because the tyres are not OEM at all.

Yes delete the time, MPSC2s are not an option.
