Willow Springs tires.....

Would you say a set of Pilot Race Mediums are fine for a track day at Willow? How well do the tires hold up?

I don't feel that Pilot Powers are good for Willow due to the high speeds.

Comments?

Shoot, I'll be running my 'Powers. I'm saving my Ractech's for Buttonwillow or Pahrump. I don't feel like wearing out the right side of a DOT. See ya at the track.

Thanks.

Have you used them there? Will I blow through this set of tires in a track day? It's ok as I can slap my street tires back on there.

I am guessing you can not flip the tires around, right?
