  1. Hey all, We as a board and staff are trying to get some data. If you could post up what tire size your team uses or know of a team that uses it, it would be helpful in data for future opportunities. Thanks, E. Tyler Pedersen
  2. Heads up, ebay has 15% off everything today, and the discount tire eBay store has a sale going on too. Just picked up a set of 205/50r15 RE71R tires for $365.50. Figured others here would be interested too. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F311641050415
  3. We are running a first gen Rx7, which is inherently prone to snap oversteer. We manage it by not trailbraking, and being cautious with throttle liftoff in high speed sweepers. We have acquired a set of wider (225) tire/wheels, and they have an offset which pushes the wheels out quite a bit (we will have to flare the fenders). We have a large inventory of narrower (205) wheels and tires to work through as well. Additionally we are putting a wing on the back. So the question is, how would our handling change under a few scenarios: 1. We run the wider wheels and wider offset wheels all around 2. Wider wheels up front 3 wider wheels in the rear. Our car currently handles pretty well under most circumstances (aside from noted snap oversteer), and brakes very well. We are concerned about possible extra stress on the rear bearings (is this worthy of concern?). Will the snap oversteer be wildly exaggerated if we run the wider wheels up front? Will the wider wheels in the rear help the twitchy handling at all? We prefer to run the wider wheels in pairs for now rather than all 4 so we can keep the handling consistent over a whole race even when we change tires. We will be going to 225s all around once we have worked through the 205s. Thanks in advance!
  4. Selling four BF Goodrich GForce Rival 225/45-15 tires -- one is brand new and never mounted, and three have been on the 2200 lb. car for less than 1/2 hour at Gingerman during a test/tune day, testing 15" vs 17" tires on the Maserati (75% pace). No flat spots. Have a fifth tire but it isn't as nice as these so I am leaving this out. These tires are the sought after original Rivals -- not the 1.5s. I can bring them to WGI to the Champ Car race if desired, or can ship (at your cost). We have decided on going 17" all the time for this and the follow-on Maserati being built now, so have no need for them. $400 or best offer for all four.
  5. I have 11 used RS3's with limited use and 3 new RS3's for sale. One of the new ones has been mounted and made 5 easy laps at Sonoma while we were getting our RS4 repaired. These were slow laps in the cold so we could learn the track. The other 2 new ones have not been mounted. The tread thickness on the first 6 used ones are #1 0.195" #2 0.200 " #3 o.170" #4 0.150" #50.190" #6 0.180". A new one measures just over 0.200" The other 4 ran two 7 hr races at MSR , won it but they are in the 0.140" range. $ 75 for the new ones and $40 for the used ones. You pay the freight. If you buy the new ones, I will give you the ones off the car for free if you pay the freight. Thanks, Rick

  7. I have 8x BFG Rivals S 225-45-15. Brand New. All were purchased in 2016 and have 2016 manufacture stamps. All have been sitting in my heated storage over winter. $520 per set of 4x. I can bring these to Watkins Glen for May 26-28 event. Jason
  8. Anyone tried the updated Federal RS-RR tires? That's (2) Arrr's for the pirates. Grip to dollar ratio seems really good, I'm reading reviews saying comparable grip to RS3's with a stiffer sidewall... though track life seems to be an unknown at this point. I'm tempted to try them in the spring as my dual purpose tire while the 2018 racecar is serving double duty daily/track rat. Under $600 for a set of four is tough to beat. Not to mention, RS-4 is beginning to trickle out from Hankook? Grip is up, life is down, similar to a Bridgestone?
  9. It'll be time to order new tires soon. We've been running the Kumho Ecsta XS and they wear well (can probably get 2x 14 hour races out of them) but I think that comes at the price of grip (speed). Truck Specs: Weighs: 2700lbs (including driver and fuel) Balance: ~54% / 46% (Front to Back) I've read a ton of threads on here and considered either the Dunlop Z2 or the BFG Rival. Thoughts?
  10. Wow look at all these choices! looking to buy some tires that are better in the rain than what we have been using and looking for your opinion.
  11. Firestone Indy 500 http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Firestone&tireModel=Firehawk+Indy+500 Nothing listed on the site for TW but if you take a look at the picture you can see what looks like a 240 stamped on the side. It is 2-something anyway. Starts at 16" and goes up. Looks like a cheap alternative. The jam packed 225/50R16 size has this tire listed at $91.10. Looks like they ripped off their sister's RE-11A but meh. Might be worth a look-see if you would like to save $80+ for a set.
  12. We ran Hankook 225 width RS3 V2s at Barber and didn't love them. So we are thinking of trying out 205 width Bridgestone RE-71R or Dunlop Direzza ZII Star Specs. Anyone have any experience they care to share with either or both of these tires? Thanks,
  13. UPDATE: The Tool is now Live at the link below, see post 20 for details https://docs.google....MGc&usp=sharing ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Now that there are more than 2 or 3 tires to consider I have gotten annoyed with navigating the websites to compare available sizes and prices. I have been working on a spreadsheet to automate this task and I'm planning to share it, but it's not quite ready yet. At this point I am looking for some feedback or ideas on how to make it better. I have no experience at this kind of thing, just teaching myself as I go, if you have a better way or want to help, let me know. I'm doing this in a Google Drive Spreadsheet and using ImportXML functions to pull the size and price data from each product page, it only takes a minute or two to add a new tire to the table (a little longer to figure out the XML code for a new website) and it should always stay up to date. Unfortunately only 50 of these functions are allowed per spreadsheet, to work around this I have separate spreadsheets that pull the data for each column and then a master spreadsheet that reads in all the data from each of those sheets. Using multiple spreadsheets breaks the automation and sometimes you have to reload the underlying sheet to re-gather the data. The solution is probably to just make a single table with only ~30 prices on it, no individual teams need to consider more than that, but ideally one sheet would work for all of us. The sample below is a pivot table of all the data collected for 180-200TW tires on TireRack and Discount Tire Direct (I skipped a few oddball tires that I didn't think people were using, run-flats etc.) it can be sorted and filtered by the various parameters (rim diameter, section width, outside diameter, treadwear, source, etc.). I'm currently calculating the OD from the size, I could pull that in along with weight or treadwidths or any other spec from the websites, but that would burn up some of my ImportXML functions and be hard to display in the same table. I'm only showing the 14-17" tires below and filtering out the 18-20", but I have all the data. Are there more tires or websites that I should add? Are there sizes that can be eliminated? Any input on the formatting or other features that would be useful? https://docs.google....MGc&usp=sharing
  14. I called a local tire shop and they stated the Falken RT-615K had been discontinued. I then called Falken corporate and they state they are "unavailable." I asked the women if they were discontinued or out of production and she stated she did not know. This applied to all sizes she stated. Anyway, I placed an order through Discount Tire online ASAP. The order went through....we'll see if they ship. Just an FYI. GL.
  15. Probably a long shot, but I'm looking to get the original Rivals (not the 'S') in 225/45-15. Tirerack doesn't carry that size in the original, only the S at the moment. If you have spares or used but good condition ones, please contact me. Thanks.
  16. 1997 BMW 328 E36 got it on a trade - thinking I would build a back up or rental chump car - I have no time as I am working for SCCA Pro in 3 different series and landlord says the car looks to bad to leave out side of my storage bay and she is right. But it is a perfect chump car as you will see in the pictures it comes with multiple colored panels and small engineered dents that are in locations that can't be easily repaired. The engine is blown and it has an automatic transmission but both have been removed and laid back in the car with only 2-3 bolts holding them in. The dash is out but included in the deal - as well as all the seats, panels carpet (but not available) ... so gutted . She is almost ready for the cage. Wiring harness is fully in place. She has 4 good rims and the tires hold air and she rolls easily. Car ran very good before it stopped running and looked great when it was new. It has cheap HID head lights and after market coil overs that need to be sold on eBay. I still have two other running E36 BMW's race cars so I maintain lots of good spares and have most of the parts needed to finish the build that can be had for cheeeep. The junk guy says he will give me $600 so that means $500 or less when he finally shows up and I know he will make me wait for him all day too. I was supposed to move it last week so bring your trailer, a chain and $500 or so and she is yours. I have a clean title in hand. You can store the car across the street from my unit it in a parking spot until the end of the month for about $50 if you buy it but cant move it right away. Got to move it before Wednesday May 20th. Call 561 - 921- 7903 or my buddy Pedro at 561 451 6282. Pedro is the original owner of the car and can tell you more things that are wrong with it.

  18. is it worth buying rain only tires for a rain race? what would be an example of one, we normally run falken azenis or kumho xs for the good days. but no idea if those are still our best option for rainy days or if we should look into another style of tire? what works well for you?

  21. Starting a thread to post tire deals in, manufacturer's rebates on chumpy tires etc. Discount Tire Direct seems to do rebates on any set of 4 tires quite often, right now it's $50 rebate on any 4 tires, until 2/28. />http://www.discounttiredirect.com/direct/findPromotions.do?pgid=737
  22. I have been trying to track down a legal set of tires for my 13 inch wheels, but cannot find anything that will be competitive near the magical 180 treadwear rating. Best I can come up with is 100 in a 185/60R13, which is going to end up being the absolute max width I can run on my wheels. Any 13 inch runners have a tire that they prefer?
  23. Looking for wheels and tires for 1st gen RX7, let me know what you have, located in north Florida, intend to run Daytona. Thanks!
