That is your opinion.Except they're not. Dot's are a race capable tire, but what are you comparing a GP-A to an NTEC slick? I dont think so.
The bridgestone slicks cost me less then what getting in the european 160 dunlop GP-A would. If you're quick enough to be thinking about contingency i dont see why it's even a question? Slicks have more grip and bridgestone is the only one available to you. The 250 GP slicks work great on an SV, your tire vendor will probably only have one hardness in stock, the soft which is the best tire for the SV.
EDITED: plus everyone loves the bridgestone tires. Predictable and last way longer then michelin/pirelli, no massive fall off of traction too. Dunlop is making really good tires again as well, if they were paying and b-stone wasn't i'd probably run the GP-A
fyi. 160 dot pirelli won every race around here and holds track record for sv SS class.it's not so much an opinion, more of a true statement that excludes pirelli lol, especially when you're talking 160 rears.
Slicks are legal in wera. They should also make them legal in all clubs. There is no good reason for slick not to be legal any more.Also you can't earn money in a supersport class if you run only slicks. There are some other non-tire contingencies that only pay for supersport classes.
