$225 per tire YIKES! I thought one of the bene's of a spec tire would be reduced costs.

While we are shopping this around, someone should consult BFGoodrich. The R1 used to be a spec tire for the Mustang series. Also, I believe that they have a street version of the R1 that Skip Barber uses as their spec tire. This might be a closer fit with our series.

The tires Skip Barber use are the BFG G-Force Sport Tires. We used them in the rain, but when it was dry used the R-1. The G-Force Sport tire is only is about $100 bucks and they can shave it down.

The sidewalls are strong enough for racing and SKBRS half of the time, didn't even change the tires too full slicks unless it was a National Skippy Weekend.

Good tire, if guys want to say get a set even shaved just to practice on and not use up their RA-1's at all on practice runs.

Thank you to Eric, Nick, and everyone elses for trying to figure out this situaiton.

Hope to see you guys at the track.
