Tires/Service

Since so many of you go through tires quickly, do you get them shipped to the track event or home? The reason I ask is because I'm not sure if i'll have time to swap out wheels in a timely manner on the day of the trackday; might be a hassle. I haven't had to take the wheels off/on...what would be easier? i'm pretty sure they'll have tire service at autobahn on the 2nd?

I really could use the discount when shipped to the track event though...

if you've never done it before, get it done before the trackday, or arrange to have someone help you. do you have stands, tools, etc?

Buy them at the track. STT has great Michelin prices at their events, and NESBA has unbeatable Pirelli pricing at their events.

Great Quote - One would think that the Secret Service was smart enough to get serviced secretly.

MotoVid hasbeen
NESBA hasbeen

CCS neverbeen

STT small STT Trailer stocks about fifty sets trackside inlcuding some smaller sizes such as 150/60.. 160/60 etc... but a heads up on what you need if its a bit out of the ordinarry is helpful. When the "big rig" is there we roll with 100sets and if it's 17" we have it...

Todd Thomas will be doing tires at ACC with the trailer and he's very helpful.
