They'll be here by the 11th and them i'm off to the glen for two days 7/13 and 14th with scda1.com .
Anyone out there with experience with those tires? Any feedback is appreciated.
I'll post afterwards.

Sticky tires, but short lifespan with our heavy cars. If you drive them to the track, they pick up road debris and puncture easily as one would expect.

You might consider the new Hoosier R100 full race slick. They cost a little more ($1400 set) but Hoosier states they are more suited to heavy cars. I'm going to try these soon. Friends who run these on GT3s are raving about the increase in stick and life over R6s. They come in the correct size for 18s.
