What are the best tyres for a track day then chaps?
i think the next set of tyres im going for will be the michelin pilot supersports..... heard good things about them and road legal.....
Well alot will depend on budget and size of balls!
I have used Toyo T1Rs, nice and grippy but a bit soft.
Hankook Evo's, good tyres not had a problem.
Federal 595s are pretty good and have them.
Toyo R888s are the benchmark but are darned costly.
Nearly forgot, avoid new road tyres unless scrubbed as the tyre can quickly overheat and fall apart, been there before!
I've got R888's on the 100R, soft's (SG) on the rear & mediums on the front (2G) but it's on T1R's on the road. I wouldn't use R888's on the road in the wet, their no fun at all.
T9, I have AD08 on the RS and they are so so good on the road. You won't get a tyre that is good in the dry AND the wet. mine are excellent in the dry but won't kill you in the wet like 48's or R888's. Speaking of which they are noisy, come with now much tread and the softer ones wear incredibly fast, best left to just the track but in that case you might as well get full slicks which negates the need for the 888 and 48 etc now imho.
couldnt agree more with you mate 888.s are awesome in the dry but hoooo. clentchy bum time in the wet lol. and do cost a lotI've got R888's on the 100R, soft's (SG) on the rear & mediums on the front (2G) but it's on T1R's on the road. I wouldn't use R888's on the road in the wet, their no fun at all.
