OK. I am STILL waiting for a spec sheet to scan but RE540 & RE550 Potenzas are available in Soft, Medium & Hard compounds, marked on the sidewall as 'Type S,M or H' I am told this equates to treadwear of 40, 60 & 80

Sizes 215 & 225/16 + 225 235 255/17



225/16 and 255/17 are control tyres & well over spec. 225 footprint 238, 255 footprints 270 but the rules take the measurement as written on the sidewall....good move Bridgestone

I use Nitto 555R Drag radials as daily drivers. I'm thinking about getting some BFG Comp T/A's for the track since I"ve used them before. I have NO experience with circuit/autocross/road racing tires. How about some insight on different type of tires for different types of racing?

Alrighty then, updating! Keep in mind all the tires in this thread are 'DOT legal', though not necessarily reccomended for street use.

Goodyear is also coming out with both a new drag radial and a new R-compound tire this year. There is no info about either on their website yet.
