    Tires @ trackday

    Does anyone know if the trackday group will be selling street tires for OUR trackday or just the tires they carry on their website. I've tried to get hold of them BUT no reply to both phone and emails

    Tire recommendation

    As a loosely related follow-up question to past track day participants:

    What tires should I run for track day?

    Normally, I'd have a touring setup (Metzler 880/88 in my case, but TYPE is more important than brand for this discussion) so should I run my "normal" tires for track day to see how they feel, and learn how they perform?

    Or, should I switch to a softer tire, because I know I will be asking for more traction that I would on any public road?

    Restated:
    Should I run what I normally use, or go softer for track day?

    tire changes

    any luck with the track day hosts? I am sure that I will be in need of a new rear by the time I get to mid-Ohio. Can we bring our own and have them mounted? inquiring minds want to know.

    Tire Sevice

    I talked to Bonnie @ Sportbike track time and she said that there will be no tire service @ the track. So it looks like tire irons and headlamps in the campground parking lot.
