Thoughts on Tires?

Recommended Posts

I'm replaced my PilotSports with PilotSport Cups and am burning through them. I'm about to mount my second set since February.

Any recommendations for a tire that can take track abuse but still rack up some mileage?

Cups tires are great. For perfomance & traction. Not for long wear. But, that's the price of addmission.

Maybe you need dedicated track tires & wheels.

Not sure what the price point is of the PSC's, but dedicated track rims are an investment while using expensive tires on the street is an expense, ie. throwing money out the window.

I am sure you can find a set of used rims that would make perfect track wheels for a lot less than going thru a set of PSC's every 5 months.

Just my 2 cents.

Keep the Pilot Cups for track only. PS2 are great for street and aggressive driving, but yes soft. If you want a harder tire that lasts longer, go with the Pirelli or Conti. If you want to drove in price point, check out the Nitto Invo or the Yokohama Advan Sport. All these are available in the 305/30/19 needed in the rear.
