  • Michelin Wets Track Pressures

    I've got a set of Michelin Pilot "wets" 18/67 x 17 and 120/60 x 17. Can anyone give me a heads up on recommended pressure off the tyre warmers?

    I've never used wet weather racing tyres before and have no idea on pressures.

    I have not used Michelin but on the Bridgestones I run 32F/30R. I also found that the warmers were not much use as after the first puddle or 2 the heat was gone anyway. Warm up lap was more like a cool down lap for the tyres.
    You will be surprised at the grip you can get from them though.

    A 1K throttle is like a hot blond, you really want to hit it but you are afraid of the consequences :black eye:
