Re: what tires do you run at the track?

Bridgestone BT-002

Everybody who runs at TWS (Texas World Speedway) will eventually need track tires..... Otherwise you will not be on the track at the exit of T2. :dontknow:

(My personal opinion based on an experience had at TWS (Texas World Speedway) in T2 with Dunlop D208 street tires.)

dude you can get some race takeoffs for cheap! Thats what I did till I got better and the takeoffs only started lasting one trackday . Seriously tho u can get some race takeoffs and be good with them for probably two or more trackdays and you'll feel more confident and will definitely increase that learning curve. Look into it right:

that. get these powers i have. you commute alot and if you get stuck in a afternoon shower coming from work you will be screwed.

buy another rear rim or set of wheels and have race tires on those. now thats a good idea. you see how long my tires have lasted and what i have done with them right:

Yeah I got first hand and up close look of what you did with them * ... * * *

But yeah I mean gettin another set of wheels would be great so u can have street as well as track tires. *Honestly I dont recommend runnin street tires on the track but that's just me. *You just dont have the confidence that you have knowing you have a "track" tire.
