Default RUBBER TIRE LIFE ASPHALT VS CARPET

SORRY I DID A SEARCH BUT COULD NOT FIND ANY INFO.

LETS JUST US 19 TURN FOR EXAMPLE. JUST BECAUSE IT'S IN THE MIDDLE.


AFTER HOW MANY RUNS WILL YOUR LAP TIMES START TO SUFFER ON RUBBER TIRES ON ASPHALT?

ALSO HOW MANY TENTHS DO YOU LOOSE?

ALSO HOW MANY TENTHS DO YOU LOOSE?

Every track will be different in that respect. Also the compound of rubber you use will have an effect on that as well.

1 to 2, depending on tire and the abrasiveness of the track.

Anywhere from 2-5 tenths per lap, also depending on tire and the abrasiveness and amount of wear.

AFTER HOW MANY RUNS WILL YOUR LAP TIMES START TO SUFFER ON RUBBER TIRES ON CARPET?

Usually after the 3rd run they slow down to a point where it is pretty noticeable. The 1st and 2nd runs are very good, 3rd is just slightly slower but not much at all.

ALSO HOW MANY TENTHS DO YOU LOOSE?

Depending on the tire, about 2-3 tenths slower after the 4th or 5th run...and generally they stay that way for a few more runs.

THANKS.......

replace your tires if your car is driving erradically (just to make sure) and replace if they begin to develop a bit of a "ridge" on the sides.
