Should I ignore the wear indicators on track day?
i use 36/39 fr /rear road race 22/39 drag strip , for 17 Dunlops. GM used 36 for track testing in development...i have spherical joints on the flca, so at any pressure without the spherical joints with stock bushings in the flca on the road race track you will wreck the outer rib of your front tires. Who cares about wear bars if you are on the track? you get what you get on track and buy new tires.(monthly /weekly
) Racing does that, wears stuff out quick and costs you money. On the street you get what you wish depending on how you drive - 25-50 k miles I use nitrogen as the molecules are larger and dont escape as fast thru the tire, no moisture etc to screw the tire performance...
