Track Tires?

What does everyone use for track tires for road course scenarios? I was thinking about getting some R compound tires for my OEM wheels....but it doesn't look like there are many options out there for R compounds in a 19. What are some other options?

Pirelli Corsa System tires are R compound and are available in stock fitment. They put them on the M6 Competition edition stock. Will last about 3-4k miles and are $2500....have fun lol

If you want to track your car with street tyres, you would need to put some money into them.

Hankooks and Birdgestones will not work if you plan to do more than 3 laps continuosly.

I would suggest P Zero or PS2.

I think PS2 is now replaced by Pilot Super Sport?

Go for Pilot Cup Sports, 80AA rating but at least they are sticky
