WTB 225-50/15 race tires
Aug 15th, 2010 at 4:24am
 
Need a set of tires that will get me through a couple of track days while I shake out a car.  If you have a set with a few cycles left on them, send me an email - ryano72 at hotmail dot com

Some 205s would be fine too.

On the R888 discussion re: HC...I ran them all last year and when they are new they are great especially when there is a bit of rain or it is damp.  The tread is just enough to give you an advantage over more shaved or slick tires.  Once they wear down (or are shaved) they are decent dry tire but some say they don't last as long as they RA1s.

Downside is they are not real rain tires - if you are in a downpour be careful.  I found that out at the 12h of the Cascades last year.  I am now the proud owner of a tirewall in Turn 1 as they make you pay for damage to the track...

If you check with Glenn Nixon, I'm pretty sure that he's got a set for sale of BFG R1's with 1 HC.
