I have a track day coming up in a two weeks and I want to get a set of real sticky tires mounted on my spare set of wheels. What are you guys running on the track?
I currently have the Yokohama ADVAN A048 and was thinking about the Proxes R888.
I'm not familiar with which Hoosier tire and size and I could run. I would love to get something like the R6 or A6 if they make them.
Anyone running the A6/R6 sizes of 205/45-16 and 225/45-17?
Rich I'd be interested in trying RA1's....available in 15/16? or is it 16/17?If you want the best mix of grip and longevity on a non-slick, R compound tire, look for a set of Toyo RA1s. I've heard that Toyo is going to continue making them because the R888 while a 'better' tire doesn't last anywhere near as long. (I just got a set myself.)
If you are in Texas I should be able to get you a set at a good discount. Send a PM if interested.
I have a second set of wheels and with treaded track tires because I don't trailer to the track. I drive the Elise there on the street 300 miles round trip and don't want to make that drive on Slicks.I don't understand people who get a second set of wheels for track tires and then run treaded tires?
