    Hey There:
    I wanted to get input on how best to manage my tires at the track.

    Could someone share their race / track day tire management process that they have had good luck with?

    I have just ordered a memory tire pyrometer, so I’m looking to use Tire Pressures and Temperatures to maximize for tire life and grip.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Hi Mike,

    Obviously keeping a constant check on tire pressure is good for them and good for even grip. The manufacturer of a competition tire will do endless testing to determine the best all round hot pressure range. Your tire dealer should be able to help you with that information.

    At all of our events we have Brad Shimbashi at Braidan Tire in residence and I’m sure he’d be happy to give you guidance. You can contact Brad off season at his cell number, which you will find on the back page of Provinz Magazine.

    Have fun!
