What tires on the track?

Hi,

I was on the track with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires and it wasn't very good - in addition, the tires after driving 40 kilometers on the track seem to be quite badly damaged (they have only traveled 4,000 kilometers).

What tires do you use on the track?
I am thinking about Federal 595 RS-RR.

Thanks

RE-71R's are pretty good track tires.

Track tires

Wondering about tires myself. I have a 2011 M3 E92 and I was told that the Bridgestone E 71s work well on the track however, I’ve been running taller tires on my vehicle and have found that the 275/30R19 fit In the front and the 295/30R19 fit in the rear without rubbing. The Bridgestone do not have that tire size.
Yokohama has Advan Neova AD08 R in a 275/35R19 and a 295/30R19.

Bridgestone does have a 285/35R19 and 305/30R19.

What experience do you have with any of these options...good or bad?

I just got a set of federal rsrr's. Main reason is, I do not plan on doing many track days and they're super cheap.

Haven't had a chance to run them on the track, but I did run them down the street a bit from my shop. One thing is for sure. These things are LOUD AS HELL. I'M TYPING IN ALL CAPS SO YOU CAN HEAR ME OVER MONSTEROUS NOISE THEY PUT DOWN ON THE STREET.

Honestly, they sound like mud truck tires going down the freeway. I thought for sure they were rubbing on something, but checked everything and saw no signs of rubbing.

Will post an after action report next month at my first event with them.
