Re: Best tires to use

Chuck, could you elaborate about Michelins and Viper Days? Isn't it correct that you can run Kumhos at Viper Days, just not as part of the Viper Racing League? So, if you want decent traction, you can have it, as long as you don't want to compete? I think that's how they explained it to me when I called them up.
I can't imagine having to run Pilot Sports on the rear after having Kumhos on there. [img]/images/graemlins/sad[/img]

Heck, call Vilven Tire and get the same tire the Comp Coupes are running in the World Challenge Series. They last longer than Kumhos, are really quick on the track and will last alot better on the street.

Their number is ........1-800-251-0017 and tell them you want them full tread.

Re: Best tires to use

I've never been a track guy so trying to learn something on this thread. So are we talking about track or auto x tires? Aren't they different? I'm looking for slicks for the track or maybe drag radials. Any suggestions? I apologize in advance for my ignorance.

Re: Best tires to use

You can run any tire you wish at Viper Days but your time will not be scored unless you are on Michelins.

Edretti, are you talking track (road course) or dragstrip?

Toyo RA-1s, and they come in 335 and 275/18 sizes. This is what the Comp Coupes are running, and having had alot of experience with these tires on my midget racecar, I can tell you they are a super strong track tire. I am just cheap, too, and like the wearability.

Re: Best tires to use

Obviously, I gave you bad info on the tire size, as Toyos only come in 18s - whoops.
