    Re: Track tyre wear limits

    My chat with the dunlop man he says heat cycles dont matter a toss. It's down to how well a tire deals with heat. Let's say you start with 10mm of tire, wear 1.5mm off it that might be 30% of the wearable amount of the tires but because the remaining has less to deal with same heat and flex it feels like a tire that's 70% worn.

    If you get what I mean

    Thats really interesting and not something I have heard before. I'd love to get a bit more information on why it is not an issue with Dunlop like it is with other tyres. The compound is certainly very different; much harder than most others and you have to be a bit careful on the first few corners but they have always been my favourite tyre to use when the conditions are decent.

    That's what I'd read before. And from reading it again it would seem that it applies to all brands. Either way I agree And Dunlop are my tyre of choice. Though the Bridgestone VO2's are pretty good.
