Metzler Sportec M5 are the tires.
I guess I will describe them as this. Not too much side wear at all. All i've done is road riding. They are not too the wear bars, and they are definitely not squared by any means, not even beginning to. I've never road on the track but I have enough riding experience to know when the wear is too excessive and tires are losing traction. These are not there, I would say if you excluded the punishment they will take on the track and only consider street riding, I would ride them all summer confidently.
Let me try again. Yes, you could spend the day wrestling the bike around the track on squared-off pieces of crap, but why? Track days are about fun, not about squeezing the last micron of rubber out of your beat-up tires. only that, but it would suck to be sitting in the grass surrounded buy broken plastic thinking to yourself, "dammit, I wonder if the tires caused that?"
I understand where you are coming from, if I were concerned about the traction the tire provides I honestly wouldn't have asked, I would have just said the hell with it and bought a new one. I've done it in the past on street bikes, dirt bikes, cars etc. Traction of this tire is not a concern, my concern is that the first track day has been incredibly expensive, all the gear and registration. Which I'm not complaining about, I understand these things cost money, especially the very first one.
I'm going to be pissed if I ride up to tech and the inspector pulls out a tire gauge and say "o sorry, you're 1/32 too low, go home". Do you see what I'm concerned about?
where u going with nesba btw?
