I used the Perilli Diablo's for my first track day they worked great. If you take it easy like you are riding in rain for 100 or so miles you should be good. Just work your lean in easy a little more each time. I would mount them and ride them not only to scuff them in but learn the tire as it will have a different profile than your old ones. Better to do that on your favorite road than at the track.I'll need tires before my first track day on May 9th, and have no idea what to get. I want a tire that gives me good milelage, but will be good for a beginner track day, I don't feel I will be real agressive on the track???
And how long before the track day should I have them put on, hearing horror stories of new, unscuffed tires, with "mold release"???
Matty, just spoon them on and don't be a ham fisted geek (like someone else I know). Ride like your in rain is good avice. Increase your lean angles until you are using the whole tire.Thanks all for the great feedback! Think I'll have a pair slapped on this weekend!! What is the average "break-in" period? Don't want to have the same experience of TripleDuck :-/
