Because they have been removed from the list of tyres allowed by the MSA for roadgoing use and so are up for sale as people buy new sets

Try to find some Yoko A008R tyres. They are good

I think the ns2 is what i'm going to run on the wider road wheels, I'm after a slightly narrower set of 14's for track stuff.

Look at the list of tyres that were in the List 1A in the blue book for road going classes. They have been removed for a reason. They are the ones I would be looking at for trackday tyres

Ns2's,RSR,AD08. These are the semi Skimmed Track tyres.

Buy these and watch people drive around you with there full fat 888R's

If you want to go fast, buy the best tyres.
You wouldn't put 95octane in your new engine you had built to go fast would you?

48R's are now 1C listed, so not road legal.

Please note that I don't need my track-tyres to be road legal ! I think I do) need semi-slicks to preserve my chassis when on the track.

We use (we have to as its a control tyre) Pirelli Trofeo R's on the race car
World class tyre MSA list B, road legal but not cheap (few good things are)
Does a 57.1 lap around Brands (quicker than those running R888's )

These look like a good option for my silver car but I would need to move up to 15" wheels.
