Tire Size choices in 10" (available stateside)

This is a discussion on Tire Size choices in 10" (available stateside) within the Mini-Motards forums, part of the General Talk category; I would agree with you running indoors on cold pavement at K2K or most indoor tracks that have smooth cold concrete. Good advice though If ...

    If you were to ride outdoors at say Jacksonspeedway, G&JKartway, Rolling Green, Michiana, New Castle, Circleville, Autocity etc.... you would have to have proper suspension and tires. Just any ole' tire will not get you up to competitive speeds.



    It was more of a blank statement ........ as most roadracers that have been on paved tracks more than a few years will tell you tire developement has increased the speeds more than anything, only suspension is close in lean angle and speed...........

    Suspension is everything in roadracing. I'd take that over HP in many situations. Tires have improved speed and laptimes, along with the ever progressing technology of bikes (for example, in the 600 class where each model evolves every 1-2 years; pretty fast if you think about it).



    Regardless, I'll take all 4 as part of a good package - even better if I don't have to try and rank them.



    Cheers.

    I don't know where you sourced the BT39's...but any tucker rocky distributor ( almost any motorcycle shop worth its weight in...paper per say) should be able to order them right out of the catalog. A great tire by the way. They have a pretty good grip even @ cold temp on cold ground, but build to a usable heat in a pretty short span. Sticky-icky...I'm all +++'s when it comes to the BT's. Just my .02!!

    my bad on the BT39 10".



    are you sure the BT39WET in size 100/90-12" and 120/80-12" are here?



    I am wondering why nobody has mentioned they have pure racing wet tires then???????????????? Because they are only in Japan like the TT72WET and TT92GP tires..............



    ................ the BT39WET is a 12" tire.



    i sourced goggle bridgestone BT601SS racing tires and found the world wide site and then found the WET racing tires..........



    So matt hook a brother up with these racing wets if you have them.........



    somebody at dieseljo.com says they might make a bulk order for these tires........ but i have called, pm'ed, posted them with ZERO response so i'm assuming this is another line of internet BS............



    I have 2 sets of TT92GPs and am dying to ride them........



    On the 10" tires i now have 2 sets of SAVA softs, And might have to buy some more while the price is right. My Daughter should be able to get to the next level of speed with them.

    yeah yeah



    the Bridgestone Japanese global site has all the race tires............. and general tires listed as well.



    a very cool layout of what they have! not alot of glitz and glam-O-rama for the poser crowd



    The BT39SS is also listed as a 12" WET not just the standard BT39SS racing 10" tire



    Oh what joy those must give in nasty conditions.



    I used a set of MT60 racing wets on a street bike a few winters ago and they were awesome for commuting on in cold wet conditions

    Yeah the 1 year old "new" 10" soft compound SAVA tires i have in my shop dent with a fingernail just like the TT92GPs i have (not that thats any real test) and compared to the BT601SS i have which do not dent anywhere as easy............ and the 1 used TT91 i have is even harder than the BT601SS ( we noticed this when purchased new)



    man if i knew where to get them 12" rains i would have bought them by now..........



    If my buddy goes back to Japan we are getting a coupla sets of either the 12" BT39SS WETs or the the TT72WETs......... in 12" not 10" i have not seen them via either manufacter in a 10" size.



    I'd bet that anyone that does big biz would want to import these tires as theres a nice racing base now to support a sizable shippment of the newest of new 12" /10" racing tires from Japan. Even though people are jumping ship and now down grading the BT and TT tires in favor of the SAVA tires....... when just a few months ago they raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaved about how awesome their TT91 tires were poke poke lol but really you'd think this would you not? I mean me and my kids will use a total of 12-16 tires a season............... how many other racers use lots of tires? LOTS i'm sure!

    Check out some of these and see what you think.

    Bridgestone-Hoop

    Duro-HF912A

    Maxxis-M6o29

    Michelin-Bopper

    Michelin-S1

    I didn't list the IRC, Dunlop, or the Pirelli cause everyone was talking about them, I'm kinda liking the Bopper but I don't know how they'd look on a standard 1.4 or 1.6 rim? Opinions Please

    Wow dude your gonna make it real easy for us to whip you this summer with those tire choices



    With all the suspension mods, motor mods, training and what ever else we have all done in the last 12 months your gonna race with standard scooter tires?



    The thread was originally intended for posts about "real" race tires not standard hoops and scooter tires relabled as "minimotard" tires.







    If your choosing a race tire for looks.......... your the best critic for your bike.
