or if you want them shaved/heat cycled (we have to shave them to prevent chunking):

https://philstireservice.com/shop/maxxis-vr-1/

If it's heat cycling and shaving that you're interested in, I can beat Phil's prices!

 

You see, we use a proprietary heat cycling and shaving technique where (without giving away too much info about how it's done), the tires are run on a track for 1.5-2 hour periods of time, separated by brief 5 minute cooldown periods. During each cooldown period the tire tread is checked, and if appropriate thickness has been removed, the tire is pulled from the car and replaced. The shaved and heat cycled tire is then dismounted and is ready to ship.

 

What does this premium service cost you? Nothing! We will service the tire free of charge and sell to you for the original list price. Let me know what tires you want, and I will make sure they are serviced during our June 2-4 tire servicing weekend at the Autobahn facility outside Chicago.

But do you offer free shipping?

Funny enough, Phil's service is cheaper than the wear/maintenance/entry fees to just run them at a track day or even the mounting/dismounting costs at the track.  Also, they need to be run gently and short enough duration (the chunking starts after ~40 minutes) that it wasn't practical to cycle them at the race.  Which sucks - because I have to pay somebody to wear out tires for me.

Just for the record. Our neon and Doom Cruiser has not experienced chunking that @Hi_Im_Will is describing. On the maxxis 245-40/15 tires.

 

We do try to heat cycle our tires once before a race. Or put them on rears first. 

 

I think it is all about what the driver wants to do. 

We have one driver that can burn holes in star specs with 10 heat cycles on them. My "relaxed" driving style barely wears the tires. Some people slow down with the brakes, some the transmission, some the tires by scrubbing speed in the corners etc.

I emailed inquiring about adding more sizes. They have more planned for their second quarter. Unfortunately our size isn't one of them.

How do we find out when the 225/45ZR15's are available and the specs?  Very few have this size any longer and that is our optimum size.  I was just about to order some 205's but would rather not.  Any chance getting a few sets before Watkins Glen?

I would email them directly. I recieved a response within an hour

I thought the wear was abnormal compared to the Rs3s- but that could just be Calabogie....

Nope, but I know junk when I see it!

 

 

Your thought process is very interesting.

 

First, you make a comment about tire wear on a track you have never been too. Which is pretty bold.

 

Second,  implying a tire that you have probably never run is junk. Is also very bold considering they are now a tire sponsor.

 

You do know you don't have to say anything.  You know that right?

It's junk, but i'll let you figure that out for your 3rd topic heading.  Enjoy!

PS: if your so worried about them being a sponsor you might want to tell Chump to spell their name right.
