    Default GTA Enthusiast Class Tire Recommendations

    Hello,

    Signed up for GTA Round 3 at Buttonwillow in the Enthusiast Class. And struggling to find a tire to run, currently run RS3 (245/40/17) but can't run them in this Class, so now i am trying to find a comparable tire to run over the two 2 days. Car is a '15 Subaru WRX on RCE Tarmac 2. Could any of the Pros here give me some options to choose from? New to TT events and don't have much experience on choosing tires. Thanks!

    requirements:

    "Cars must use DOT-approved treaded tires with a minimum UTQG-rating of 220 or higher. Equivalent tires from other markets (such as EU and Japan) are permitted if there is official documentation validating claims."

    Evasive sells the Achilles 123s, 220 treadwear. Not sure how much stock they keep:
    Evasive Motorsports | PH: 626.336.3400 Mon-Fri, 9am-6pm PST: 123S

    I believe almost all Enthusiast winners in the last few years ran that tire. Pilot Super Sport (300tw), GT Radial HPY (300tw) are other options.


    Curious what else you've done to the car.. oil cooler, bigger radiator perhaps?
