View Full Version : How do stock tires and pads hold up to track event?

Long tracks... Laguna Seca, Sears Point...
Any idea how many tracks days from stock tires and pads. (1 track day = 4 x 25-30 minute sessions)

Cal? Silver Baron? Others?

Not really the answer to the question you asked, but I can confirm that 5 simple 48 second autoX labs used a substantial amount of tread from the rear tires on my V. Of course, I was cooking the corners for fun...but still would have used nearly as much. I think you might find that one track day at a place like Sears Point would just about eat the stock tires, but I could be mistaken.

Good luck and have Vun!

Please reference my thread "Maxing the G Meter at Pocono." I had 4 runs of 20-25 minutes with no tire or brake problems. No undue wear at all.
