I have a question about the tire rules. Are we going to disallow specific tires which meet the minimum 180 treadwear requirement for CCC (line A7)? There are several new for 2017 200TW street tires, new compounds which narrow the gape between R-Comp track tires and street tires, The Falken Azenis RT615K is new for 2017, Toyo, Kumho, Dunlop, BFG, are all releasing new compounds for this year to equal the Bridgestone RE71-R.
The least expensive 200 treadwear tire I have found in my size (205/50-15) is the Bridgestone RE71-R, $112.50. In the spirit of keeping costs down in CCC, I want to run these. I'll take the additional PTE points for line A7. I suspect if we start banning specific tires that meet the treadwear requirement decided on, each season we are going to have to add more to list?
