Need cold tire pressure recommendations on Contis for BIR this weekend

Unfortunately my Blizzak's corded at my last track day so all I have left for track tires are Conti slicks. Fortunately the temp is 34* so they shouldn't crack, but just wondering what you guys recommend for cold pressures.

Too Hot for the Boss!
I believe the 'hot' pressures that GTRacing supplied me with were 30-32 psi.

Check out the Hoosier Tire Temp Recommendation page... should get you close.

In case you are lazy, the R6 for a 3000+ lb car has a desired hot pressure of 34-39 psi with a starting cold pressure of 23-29 psi

I can FedEx my tire groover to you and you can turn the Contis into snow tires :)
Unfortunately it might come to that. Still holding out a glimmer of hope......Fri high of 50 mostly cloudy, Sat high of 44 (30% chance of rain) and Sun high of 56 cloudy.

Man I am so glad I do not live where some of you guys live. Good luck getting track time this w/end

It is cold here around GA/AL/SC up until late Feb/early Mar. I don't go on track anymore until April since you don't get enough traction for it to be fun. If I wanted to waste that much of my money not having fun I would just take the woman shopping. :D

Gary,
Leave the Boss at home and drive the F-150 on the track. ;)
And you live too far south--no snow up here.
 
OK pulled the seats and put the numbers on. Hopefully that induces warmer weather :-\ Looks like it's time to break down and get a new windshield.

Gary - That Boss is looking like it is itching to get back on the track. You better not disappoint it and wimp out just because we're gonna need snow tires 8)

My Boss is strapped to trailer and ready to roll tomorrow afternoon, regardless of whiteout road conditions.

You're shaming me into it. Now just have to work on Kevin :)
