So here's the deal. I am new to HPDE's. I worked on the car and upgraded to the 6 pots and 19x11 305's 200tw even before I hit the track. A car with almost 500 hp is new to me. I think that I may have a hard time taking the car to it's limits and learning. I have a chance to grab some apex 18x10's with 275 square 360 tread wear tires. I really don't want the 360's but have an idea. What if I just slow down, run that setup, destroy them and learn the car better. Once I have some proficiency maybe move up on compound or slicks to 295's and keep going. After that keep the 200tw on the 11's with the 305's and progress. I'm trying to have 2 sets of track wheels - on on the car and on ready to go just in case. I could even eventually run some endurance 200tw on the 10's as my street and intermit track tires. I don use the stang more than 3-4K per year. Loong for input from you seasoned guys. Thanks!
