If you are running trackday tires you don't need tire warmers.

You won't need them, but it's not going to hurt you to have them if you don't mind spending the cash on them.

2. You strap them on and plug them in.

3. Check with the tire manufacturer for recommended temp on tire you're running. Remember that the pressure you're running comes into play as well. A lot of your warmers are single temperature warmers without digital readout to begin with, so this probably won't end up being an issue.

I have a set of the T2's. They have been great. I run my supercorsa pros at around 31, 30 and I put the tire warmers at 120 F when I get back from a session and then up the temp to 175F, 20 minutes before a session. Rinse and repeat. And I use them for track days. I do it mostly for the heat cycles and increased "confidence" out of the gate and in my tire longevity.

I do but not selling them. Just bought them Chickenhawk Pole Positions.


you usually want them at about 175*??? Also depends on type of tires you are running.

How many track days will you be doing? I have a set of tire warmers that I have yet to use. Yao, you better not mess these up. (oh, you thought I forgot....not) If you are doing your first track day, I will suggest you get with people on the board and Pit with them as opposed to doing things your self. Have you set up your bike up yet? If this is your first time doing a track day, get to know the track and don't worry about a hole lot of stuff that you need not worry about. I'm not trying to tell you what to do, I'm saying learn the track and where the turn in points are to get the most out of your experience. Cam, would you agree that pitting and doing everything yourself is a good idea for your first track day?

G -
Original post is from June. To answer your question no - first track day alone is a bad idea! I am still grateful to u and Yao for helping me through a potentially overwhelming experience. As you told me..."that's not how we roll at .net - we r family".

Now whats up with those warmers? I am interested. I want to run Super Corsas next year instead of my Corsa IIIs.
