NT01 for road coarse onlyMy Pirelli summer tires wore out fast on the track. Any recommendations for a good track tire (road course, not strip)? I'm thinking about Nitto 315/35/20, but am worried about rubbing. Not finding much available in the stock size 295/45/20.
Right 1 set of tires each trip and im not sure how long the rotors will last either with the hard braking? I guess at least we dont have to pay for carbon ceramics yikes.You actually track the jeep? GoPro that ish. I can’t afford the tires to do that.
of coarse I didnt, lol I bought this thing on a whim. I had all my Ducks in a row to buy new platinum Escalade add Magnuson 2650 SC and Willwood Brake set up.You know there’s a class included with the jeep purchase right? It’s in Phoenix.
I seen the power stop thread. I was going to get the Demon racing rotors and pads they use. Money is not being nice to me so Demon has to wait. I must agree the dust on the TH is insane and the PS pads will be next. prob same timer I install the Bwoody suspension.No worries, that’s the whole point of the forum. You put brake pads on yet? I put on powerstop pads and no more dust. There a thread on here about them, search brake dust
Oh and yes I agree that is exactly what these places are for. but its not said enough so thanks againNo worries, that’s the whole point of the forum. You put brake pads on yet? I put on powerstop pads and no more dust. There a thread on here about them, search brake dust
NT05 for the 1/4 mile.
I would NOT track a 5500 Lbs Suv with a S/S (street slick) tire like that, the lack of sidewall will be an enormous issue and you will lose any type of precise steering at speed. I ran my ctsv with that tire and the mickey et street SS and almost killed myself! The mickeys made for a 10.2 1/4 tho!!
As for tire size, if your sticking with the 20's your stuck with the 295/45 or the 315/35 (much shorter tire).
in the 315 you have the MPSS which would definitely be the best track tire IMO. (I have them in the 22" on my jeep. Phenomenal), or the PZERO.
in the stock size your stuck without a premium summer non runflat tire. the stock pzero runflat is a good tire of course. and there is the Michelin Pilot a/s3 , it is an all season but it is a high performance all season and I also run those on my CTSV for the street and they have monster grip for an A/S, obviously tho not perfect tire for the track.
Thanks for the tips. I was hoping to get the Michelin sport cup 2, but they don't come in TH size. I'll look into the MPSS and Pilot a/s3, but I wonder if it'd be like the pzeros I had --- plenty of tread left, but they feathered.
I think street slicks would be better to prevent that. But I don't want to die. Isn't the NTO5R the Nitto tire for the strip -- no sidewall support -- and the NT05 for the track with sidewall support?
