I've seen it but not consistently after 3 runs on all 4 tires. Usually due to poor setup and dozens of runs. I know different tires sometimes want different camber angles, etc. was just looking to see if that's the case here. I've only been running Solaris tires for 4 weeks on asphalt now. Never had the issue on carpet.

Sounds to me like this isn't uncommon so Im just chalking it up to that being the norm with these. No biggie.

Thanks for the props. Means a lot coming from an accomplished racer like you.

I`m just getting into on-road so please excuse me if this is a dumb question .

Why are these tires so hard to get ? My LHS/track can`t keep them in stock and I can`t find a single place online that has them in stock for the past 2 weeks .

Its because they were picked for the spec tire for the nats so everyone is using them now working on setups. We use them for the spec tire already for 17.5 blinky. Great tires. They are gonna be hard to find till more stock comes in. Should have piles of them before long. Kinda have to.

And that's without rotating them! Very very happy with the performance!
Had the same experience as Al since we ran together at the track. Approximately the same amount of runs. Pretty impressed with the tires' consistency.

I had so trouble with my car these pasted weeks, but I finaly got it working.
I drive on a outdoor low/med grip tack, even with the solaris med from indoors the car worked like a charm. I sharped 5 sec off my total time, almost turned in one more lap.
Great improovment even with indoor tires.

What are the recommended temperature ranges for the various Solaris tires.

I have a set of pre-mount SB35 tires that seemed to be working pretty well, but today it felt like I was driving on ice. I took a reading of the track temperature between heats and it read 117 degrees Fahrenheit, ambient temperature was about 80. The tires had 5 prior runs on them and do not look too badly worn. The temperature was a few degrees warmer than before and the track was sprayed with sugar water today and got nothing before.

In contrast, I put a new set of Solaris S-MSS0M0B (whatever that part number means???) on my mini cooper and it was glued to the track today.

Should I have been running a harder or softer compound on my touring car? It felt the same with and without traction compound.

Thanks for any insight anyone can provide,

Why are these so hard to find anywhere? Can't they keep up with demand?

We run the premounts S-TSHGM4W here in Florida, and they hold up well in the heat. I am no expert, but my intrepetation of the part number is this....

S = Solaris
TSH = Touring,Slick,Hard
GM = Insert, Medium
4 = 4 of them
W = White wheel.

We run this tire from 70f -140f degree track temps.

Why does no one bother to read just a few of the most recent posts?

I find it hard to believe that a company would be picked as a national spec tire and not be ready with stock. Knowing everyone would be using them before the race to get ready. That is like throwing money away. If it is a tire that is carried from year to year no reason to be out of stock. IMHO that is.
