Got my first trackday coming up soon.
Ive got Toyo T1-R Tyres fitted at the minute. Just wondering how well they work around a track.
Also what PSI Should i be running them at.

S1 or S2?
On an S1 you want them to be in the region of 24 to 25 at the front and 27 to 28 at the rear when HOT.
If you drive quick enough you'll really feel the sidewalls rolling over if you run them any lower, I say that from experience.

It would be interesting to know how you go about deciding the best pressures. I thought it was by checking the wear against a set point (888's have a little arrow), and adjusting the pressure - or is there a better way?
I'm currently using AD08s and have had fun on AD07s and A048's but it was more guessing what to use with no real science behind it (hangs head in shame - my OCD missed that chance)
I usually check the fronts are the same and the rears are the same (at what ever I decide to use) on a decent digital tyre gauge and then go and have some fun.
So what are the do's and don'ts and what to look out for - be especially useful as TD fever is coming round again ... (reminds me - I've a TD on my insurance to use up before end of May)

Well i had my trackday on Wednesday and was more than impressed with the grip they gave. They started to get a bit to soft when i stayed out for 20mins at one point could notice the back starting to twitch.
Overall it was a fantastic day and cant wait to go again at some point
