Track Day Tire Recommendation
Hi Guys- I am prepping for my first ever track day at Gateway Motorsports outside of St. Louis, MO on May 26-27!!
So I have Bridgestone 023s on my Versys right now. In your opinion are these acceptable (and safe) for track use? After doing forum searches I see some guys use a more track day specific tire, while others use a sport-touring tire like a 023 or Pilot Road 2. My top concern is safety so I would consider buying some new sportier tires if needed... but I would really like to keep the 023s on and save the money and hassle of switching tires. Keep in mind I plan on scrapping pegs quite a bit!
Any thoughts or comments are appreciated.
