M2C at Yas Marina Circuit

Just had my first track day in my M2C at Yas Marina circuit Abu Dhabi.
Car is Completely stock with Pilot Super Sport tires.





What tires do you recommend for track and daily driving?

Im interested in changing them to Cup 2s or RE71r, 255/35 F 285/35 R on stock rims.
Car will be daily driven and see the track once every month.

Open to any suggestions.

71R or RS4 if you can deal with a little less grip but much more durable.

Yea, RS4 all the way. Especially since you won't be faster on 71rs if this was your first track day anyway.

RS4 not an option since no 255/285 size.

But comparing 71R vs Cup 2, which one is better in terms of daily driving and durability?

And what other mods do you guys recommend for track days?

In that case I would do 71Rs.

I would get camber plates so you don't destroy their sidewalls. That's all you really need besides brake pads/better brakes.
