Hey everyone. So I did a search thinking that there would be many current posts on this topic, but I was wrong. So perhaps a refresh of opinions on current track tire options is in order. I've been running BFG G-Force R1's (not R1S's) on my car for a few years now. However, they keep getting more expensive, and I don't get alot of "mileage" out of them. They are great tires, though, if you have unlimited budget! So I'm looking for something similar (R-comps, probably), but less expensive and with somewhat better wear characteristics. I can sacrifice a little grip, but I'm not willing to sacrifice sidewall stiffness as I hate the feeling of driving on "jello"! So what is the collective wisdom of this illustrious group on this topic? ;-)

Thank you!

Kelly

What is the easiest way to clean this off? I have used my fingernails and a rubber eraser. I am concerned about saving time and my cars finish. Any ideas?

There is a product called Mothers R3 that works good. Also if you put a good coat of wax on right before the event you'll be able to get a lot of the marks off with just soap and water.

This works great for me. I spray just a little on a cloth and wipe the rubber mark away: 3M adhesive remover

NT-01's are a great tire. Run them full tread and you'll get a ton of life out of them... especially if you rotate them properly..

I'm running Nitto NT555 RII tires on my C5 Z06. They are very similiar to the NT01's. I run them both street/track.

Thanks Mark! I've been hearing/reading good things about both of those tires. I'm leaning toward the toyo's at this point. thanks! hope to be at RA this Sunday, but it's going to be a last minute thing as i don't have my car back yet. i need to do front rotors and an oil change once i do get it back, so it will be tight, but hopefully it will happen!

hey Kelly, there are a wide range of opinions on this subject... mine is that the Toyo RA1 or the Nitto NT01 offer a great all-around compromise on the equation of $$$-life-grip. But, AWD wear characteristics may vary. And then, for those that don't worry about budget, HOOSIER is always the mack-daddy... more $$, but, lap times drop 1-3 seconds immediately!

Drive Well, The management
