    Semi-slicks for track days

    Does anyone have updated info on semi-slicks for our 19 inch wheels ? I am told by the local Michelin importer that still no tyre available for the rear (295 or 305).

    Re: Semi-slicks for track days

    try pirelli corsa.

    Re: Semi-slicks for track days

    Porsche does not recommend a semi-slick or slick for the 997.

    At least for the non GTx (oil starvation in the engine).

    Re: Semi-slicks for track days

    I just installed Pirelli Corsa's and ran then at a DE this past weekend at Sears Point Raceway, sorry Infineon, in Sonoma, CA. Excellent grip. They still look really good. I think the wear will be decent. This was the only tire avalable cost delivered was just under $1600.

    I thought the caution was only with true racing slicks. I thought semi-slicks (DOT legal) were ok, no?

    Re: Semi-slicks for track days

    Our local porsche dealer supplies semi-slicks and is an active supporter of track days (we have a great F1 spec track here) .......... with both Porsche technicians & Michelin reps in attendance.

    Michelin UK have just confirmed to me that a 305/19 is now available........I guess they had to with the GT3 on the way. Details :
    305/30 ZR 19 (102Y) 'Pilot Sport Cup N0' Extra Load (Michelin stock code: 084704)

    Re: Semi-slicks for track days

    Can we order the Pirelli Corsas online?
    I'm based in Asia.

    Re: Semi-slicks for track days

    Fanch was told not to put Rosso Corsa tires on his 997S, the car could not handle the extra level of lateral acceleration due to the lack of dry sump lubrification.

    Re: Semi-slicks for track days

    I believe both Pirelli, Yokohama and Michelin have R Compound tires available in 19" for the 997.
    Excellent grip and moderate wear. Caution in the wet.
