    Any updates?
    I just bought a set of Hankook Z-214 c51's for my track day Mustang and I'm wondering how many heat cycles I should expect to get out of them.
    I was also looking at the Maxxis RC-1 and I'm not sure which would be the better tire.
    Thanks in advance for your input.

    I have found that the 214 last about 4 races before they start falling off lap time wise. But get another 2 weekends out of them before the treads gone. They mostly give up before the tread does.

    I do everything I can to mange my tires though. Rotation after each race and flip them on the rim after 2 races.
    Hankooks do not need to have the same warm up or break in period the Hoosiers do. So you don't have to worry about that.
    That's not a Typo, I just can't spell no so well.

    Thanks, I'm doing track days so its basically 5 heat cycles per event....I'm trying to figure out how many track days per set of tires so I don't run out of grip at an event.

    You'll get 2 full weekends with them before they get slippery (so 4 track days which will roughly be around 18-20 heat cycles). I'm using them on a TT prepped Honda S2000 and I find they drop off in times a little after the 2-3 heat cycle, but then they stay consistent for the next 10-15. Even when they get slippery, they aren't bad but they will get slippery before they cord.

    The Maxxis tires will last longer, but are not as grippy. I would say that unless you are competing, the Maxxis tire is about the best bang for the buck today.
