Tire Warmer Rental Program

I'll be offering Chicken Hawk Pole Position tire warmers for rent at all upcoming events that I attend. LSTD trackdays & CMRA races. These are top of the line 3 temp setting warmers.

$50 per day rental w/ $200 deposit.

I only have a couple of sets right now; so get yours secured early.

If you decide to order a set of warmers from me, after trying them out, I will apply your rental fee to the purchase price of the warmers. I carry Suzuka & Chicken Hawk brands of warmers.

This is a great way to see if you like the warmers as well as see how much of a difference it makes in the performance of your tires.

PM me for warmer prices. Feel free to call me if you have any questions.

John

Only one rental can be applied to the purchase price.

In my opinion Chicken Hawk makes the best product. They are not the cheapest, but you can get years and years of trouble free service from these warmers. This is just a chance to see how/why everyone runs these warmers. If you decide to buy some, then it really didn't cost you anything to see how well they work. This is also a chance for the occational trackday rider to see how these things work and what advantages they offer without shelling out any big $$.

I'll vouch for the Chicken Hawk as being one the best "tire warmers" out there, used them over 2 years now - no issues, rips, burns or any problem with it what so ever.

Good deal John, what's next? (Michelin tires) :P

how does the standard Suzuka compare to the standard chicken hawks? About the same? I was looking at getting those since I find them for $50 less.
What's your prices on the two?
Thanks

I would say the Suzuka is a entry level warmer, a good product, but still a entry level product.
Chicken Hawk is what all of the big AMA teams use and even a couple MotoGP teams. They are just better. I carry both, If you just don't want to spend the extra $$ for the Chicken Hawks then the Suzuka is certainly a good option.
