Tires and wheels
"We recommend and use Dunlop because the shop is Dunlop's Western U.S. track supplier," Hull says. But there are plenty of excellent tires out there, whether slicks or DOTs. "The key," he adds, "is to pick a tire, develop your chassis around it, and then stick with it. Tires are constructed differently, and going from brand to brand will wreak havoc on a good chassis setup." Hull says the stock wheels are excellent for street or track-day work. "Aftermarket wheels are lighter, but they're considerably more fragile, too; they're often toasted in a crash, and they're very expensive."
