+1 on getting them from javis garage rather than a shop.

i'd go with mich pilot powers

or even try the new bridgestone dual compound tires. if they are any good as their DOT race tires...........i'd pick the stones over anything. (and this is coming from a person that hated bridgestones before)

Depending on how aggressive you are, you may not require dual compound track oriented tires like the 2CT, BT002 track or Corsa 3. Especially if any kind of mileage is important to you.
Give me a shout tomorrow and I can better advise you on the choices available.

BTW I just bought a new 190/50 Pilot Power (regular not 2ct) for $150 from Street and Track Import Accessories. They were the cheapest I found. Spencer Cycles is about to launch a sale this month where you can get a set of Pilot powers for $250


I like the powers the best out of the stree tires today.
I used to run the Bridgestone BT010s and liked those a lot, good grip and good mileage but they quit making them. I still like the oldschool Dunflop D207s... can't get em any more though.

GO WITH BRIDGESTONE SLICKS!!!!!!!!!!!! You'll get lots of grip!

Oh, just be sure to adjust the flux rate on your flux capacitor when going to slicks!
