Arrow Mr. Whoopie discusses Tires (VID)

In Ridesmart's Advanced Rider Course we periodically invite knowledgeable folks in to discuss their areas of expertise. In this instance, our very own Alan Campbell, discusses performance tires and race tracks.

Thanks for this video. I was wondering if there is a formula to figure out tire pressure based on the temperature of the track and how hard/soft of a compound you're using. Or is it just set it to the best guess go out and try it out and come back to fine tune?

Can anyone provide pictures of cold tear and hot tear tires? I don't know what he's talking about that when it mentions it in the video. I agree 100% about having confidence in your tires. I remember the exact moment my confidence in my tires increased dramatically. I was out on the street going around a curve at 85mph when I came across a patch of dirt 6' long by a foot wide in my direct line. I knew one of two things were about to happen. Either I was going to go down or the tires were going to hold. As I was about to hit that dirt, the thought that went through my mind was "Tires, I hope you hold". Sure enough, when I hit the dirt, the tires slipped some, but they did their job, they held. Since that time, my trust and confidence level in my tires has been pretty high up there.
