Track tires (street tires exempt)

Been hopping around on ebay...

I know shinkos are good to shread in the parking lot stunting and such...

how are their track slicks though?

i would assume the composition would soften to worthlessness due to the sheer quality of the company..

but for 90 bucks a tire would it be worth my time?

1. How many track days have you done?
2. Most slicks require tire warmers. Do you have them?

You get what you pay for. If money is a concern, and you want slicks, get a set of diablo superbike pros. Yes they're more than $140 a tire, but they'll have double or triple the life of that shinko slick. I ride at a medium to fast intermediate pace on a v-twin litre, and got 15 trackdays out of a rear.

I would never trust that tire at speed, even if you are in lvl 1 or 2 say you run wide and you try to save it and looses grip , bust that all because you saved $50 and destroy a motorcycle.

If you notice tire slip on a slick at 2:05 pace...that tire is garbage.

No tire slip till it was really hot. They are not true slicks. That is why they are cheap. You can run them on the street as well lol. As long as its not raining.

I've known people to run pilot ROADS at a 2:05 pace with no slip. Even when it was "really hot." Assuming you're running correct pressure, of course.

OK means, at least, acceptable. I'd consider a tire that slipped at a 2:05 pace unacceptable. Especially if they're marketing it as a DOT race tire.
