RE: What is a good high speed tire in a 15" ??

Ever bought 28 race tires for a season? Trust me, fiscal solevency is an issue for a lot of race teams, just not most of the guys that most people are used to seeing. Look at the SCCA Pro class guys. Most of the Miatas and other factory 4 cyl guys don't have an unlimited budget and massive sponsor money. They have bills to pay, and regular jobs. They race because they love it.
Do those Miatas go 200? When I raced in SCCA, even the GT1 cars didn't go 200. We're not talking road racing here. We're talking going 200, which, according to you, some would try doing on 15" rubber. I don't know why you brought up SCCA, it's a completely different conversation. And yes, when I raced in SCCA, I did have a regular job and I did have bills. I raced an RX-2 that didn't go much more than 130-140 though.
Felicita e un bicchiere di vino con un panino.
