How many track days on a set of tires? - October 1, 2008, 10:23 AM

I did one track day on a set of Contisport Attacks and got them good and hot since we were running 15 min on/15 min off the whole day. There is still enough tread to survive through another day, I speculate. On the one hand, I don't really want to have lurking in the back of my mind that my tires were already heat-cycled on a prior day. On the other, if it's no biggie then I may just go with the used tires that are on the bike now.

Do you run the same set for more than one track day or do you put new tires on for each day?

Track Day Checklist

Post #4

Although those are races, I'd say you are closer to 50-70 laps at pace for a trackday tire.

Generally I get about 2-3 trackdays on a set of tires.

first, yes I run several trackdays at least to a set of tires, and that is race tires

second, street tires do not heat cycle like race tires do and won't run out of grip near as fast. I got 10 trackdays out of a set of Pilot powers between 06 and 07, I won't recommend going that long, but they stuck well, that was running 25's or so at summit and low to mid 40's at VIR, nothing too quick but not terribly pokey either

Confusing the issue, since before you were ugly.

Street tires are not race tires. The track pavement isn't any different from the street. You can ride on your street tires on the track pretty much as long as you have thread.

I knew it... everyone thinks Palin is hot.

Thanks guys. I appreciate the information about the tires. Ben, your track day list is a winner. I'll reference it in any td roll call threads I create.

it depends on the tires... and wat pace ur running...and wat kind of tire.. and how many heat cycles u put them through... and which track ur at....

on corsa iiis... at intermediate pace... i can usually get 4-5 days outta them... plus some street miles.... lightning (NJMP) does eat up tires... i went there.. then went to main.. and my tires were pretty darn smooth afterwards.. compared to wat lightning did with them... lol

I get 4 trackdays on a rear Diablo Corsa III. The front, I get about 7.

Plus about 1,200 miles of street riding (slow, commuting).

The right side always wears out (all the tracks I run are clockwise). I do NOT flip them (direction of circulation) like some of the CR's I know do (a'hem, sportbikerchic ... LOL).

My normal routine is New front & rear ... for 4 track days ... then a new rear for 3 track days ... then, start over again with both a new front and rear.

In terms of how I ride, I run 1:28 - 1:30's on Summit Main ... so, that gives a bit of perspective (and I do not use warmers).
