Tyre TECH - Read if you plan on doing anything that involves turning and a clock.

For those of you looking to purchase some tires for track days, here is some reading material you should check out.

Tires will make or break a car, you can have all the power, and all the mechanical grip you could ever want or buy, but if the one thing that connects your car to the earth sucks, guess what, your car is going to suck.

You will note some these tests have tires that some don't.

Firestone firehawks are the stickies run flats I could find. But my next set of tires will be none run flats. I did run flats bc I have no spare and I use my car to commute to work.

I love my Firehawks, I just need them to be bigger... 275s would be nice.

I love the firehawk wide ovals. I have 295s on the back, I do wish they were a little more sticky, if I punch it under 50mph I spin em.

not really no, they are more of a generic car tire.

the Firehawk wide oval non-runflats are very nice, I have the Runflats b/c my car does not come with a spare lol.
the P2's that Nick has on his bimmer are nice too.
Nitto INVO's are one of my favorite tires.

This is kinda a track tire discussion, anything that can't be documented via a stopwatch is just preference.
