How much track time do you plan on doing? Autocross or time attack?Michelin Pilot Super Sports are a great track/DD tire, they're all rated #1 in the "Max Performance Summer" category on Tirerack.com. Unless you want something more aggressive and track focused.Check out these two links, credit to Magnet for posting them in another forum.http://www.tirerack.com/tires/surveyresults/surveydisplay.jsp?type=MPhttp://www.tirerack.com/tires/surveyresults/surveydisplay.jsp?type=UHP
My only concern is finding the happy middle for a tire that will preform good at low heat for auto cross but not overheat for bigger tracks.
I don't think you'll ever find that - it's either one or the other. No matter what you buy it'll be a tradeoff if you want both.
Sounds like you might need a third set!
What about the Nankang NS 2R? It's DOT R compound that's pretty affordable and seems to have good reviews. They come in 180 and 120 treadware.Sent from my LG-H812 using Tapatalk
I used to own a set of Kuhmo Escta V10 slicks I used for autocross. They were simply amazing and turned my civic into a go kart. Definitely have to change the wheels at the event.Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
Have you ran any other slicks to compare these too? Car will be trailered to tracks so wear isn't a issue. From what I've researched lots like to stick to the Hoosier slicks or hankook
No I have not. I decided to jump back to street tires because with racing slicks it puts you into one of the most penalized groups if you were wanting to be competitive.But mainly slicks hide your mistakes and save you bacon when you should of spun out or not made the turn. I wasn't progressing as a driver.
