I used to have an extra set of rims and R or A compound tires, but got tired of changing wheels for racing.

When I was driving my 2001 Boxster S, I swapped FTDs with a guy in a Z06. I was on street tires, he was on Hoosiers. He only ran once without his Hoosiers. He was 5 seconds slower.
who changes them? i ran R compound tires for the last two summers. everywhere. good times!

Got caught out in rain on race tires once. Very scary trip home. Not that there was much of a chance of that happening this past summer. I drive my cars everywhere including out-of-town trips and just don't ilke the idea of spending the extra monies for track tires, then wasting heat cycles on the street.

Looks like my next set of tires will be Hankook R-S3. Unless something faster comes along between now and the tread wear bars on the Direzza Star Specs.

rain does suck. i rarely drive the porsche, except for thrills, anymore. i put snow tires on it while it hibernates in the winter, just in case i need it in an emergency.

While the mullet is very likely, I think the beer of choice is Keystone. Well, according to Mr. Smooth, Keith Stone (Camaro driver).
