PostSubject: best tyres for track racing   Tue Jun 07, 2011 6:59 am

Iv been looking at semi slicks to put on my vts alloys but there about 500 for set of 4 that's toyo r888 and yokohama a048. There alittle expensive at the moment I'm saving up for them lol unless anyone knows a place cheaper. So what sort of good grippy tyres are there that are around 200. A set of tyres I'm thinking of are yokohama parada spec 2 there 160 a set they was good when used before but does anyone know of better make tyre and link me some websites cheers

Ive no experience with them so only going from word of mouth, but i was told the Parada's were better suited to slightly heavier cars (Civics etc) for out right grip. Though they'd last quite a while based on that.

May be worth asking how much tread is actually left in them, there is usually indentations scattered around the face to give a reading.

Yes I was looking at those paradas they look good and there around 175 for set of 4 that's better than 4 a048 at around 580 a set lol also they last longer than semi slicks , I know not as much grip but does it as only for trackdays
Iv seen some federal 595 rs-r semi slicks there around 350 a set of 4 and last alittle longer than the other two semi slicks so may give them ago

I used Parada's on my LCR, they're great in the dry, not so much the wet. They take a fair bit to get them up to temperature but once they're there your confidence in attacking the corners increases. They're about 200 for 2 for mine (225/40/18) but last a few track days. The set currently has been to the 'Ring, done a good few laps, Rockingham last weekend and they've still got 5mm treat on them (they start with about 7 or 8mm)
