Metzeler has a good promo goin' on these, but I'm not familiar with them. Any comments?
Longevity is always important (at least the wife thinks so ). I've never used tire warmers, but I haven't run race tires before either. I'll have to see if I can borrow a set for the weekend. As for rain, I'm bringing the Pilot Powers just in caseLord Duckhunter said:The Racetec's ROCK!
A little more grip than the Rennsports they replaced, but much better longevity! Very neutral steering tire with excellent stability & they were good for about 2 seconds a lap improvement over the Renns.
For Track Use I highly suggest tire warmers & you better get your set-up correct cause they will cold tear to shreds if you miss it.
I've also used them in a torrential downpour at Barber & found them to be sufficient for a little fun, but a wet weather tire they aren't...
