Tires after a track day, Then Street

Can I use the same tire that i use on he track after a lil abuse , And use them on the streets. ?
I'm not sure but after taken a route I notice a big difference I can't lean bike anymore and I feels awkward and slippery due to all the abuse side wall action made on the track.



Thanks

it depends, theres the wear indicators on the inside of the treads of your tires, if thats flush with the outside thread then u have less then a 100 street miles i heard.

That is not the only indicator of weather or not a tire is good. Take a tire that for example has been heat cycled many times, this will drastically change the composition of the rubber. I would suggest getting a set of tire warmers to throw on in between runs so that the tires don't cool down. Also like others have said, if they don't feel right it might be time to change them.

If they are "street" tires, a tire warmer is a waste. This also could all be in your head.

Kinda what I was gonna say.

I never use track tires on the road but I never use street tires on the track.

Is that why you were leaning the bike over while we waited yesterday? I was wondering what you were checking...

You should be running pressures on the street around 34-36 psi.

With all due respect, unless you've done a couple more track days since you've ridden GSS, you're not going to your tires at a novice pace. Assuming your tires are in good shape, I think your pressures are just too low.

You can use the tires for double duty. Today's ss street tires will easily handle the occasional trackday. You'll find that tire life will shorten, but you can expect to get a few td's. Out of them and still get a few thousand miles wear. Just make sure to raise your pressures up for street duty.

Your riding will dictate which type of tire will best suit you. Are you planning on mostly street? In that case the 2ct will be fine. Mostly track? Then perhaps the 003RS will be best.

If you are going to start getting serious about the track then get a set of track tires but I wouldnt waste the money until you start really cooking out there.

Today's tires are pretty advanced and can handle almost anything you can throw at them at the track.

But once you do get fast enough to need race tires, you need to get warmers and with warmers comes the need for stands and I would invest on a tire changer. Its not that hard to change tires.

I would go with the HF changer, the nylon inserts and a No-Mar mount-demount bar and a balancer.

Once you buy everything you need for track days, you will be out a pretty penny, not much of an investment.

So changing over to track tires comes with a lot of other to buy.

i have been in level 4 with ridesmart and TTD advanced running metzler z6 tires. a sport touring tire and was passing folks left and right . you dont need a different set unless you are a fast sob like all the racers out there. at that point you would probably have already given up the street and just had a dedicated track/race bike.

i wouldnt worry about tires if you are new to the game. you'll know when it's time to get better rubber
