If you want to go faster than 200mph ... street tires are approved to 220mph ONLY if they have ( ) around the Y.  BFG KDW 2s do not have the brackets and are not approved for 200+.

I got a flat with my PS2s last weekend.  Tire shops had to instal a patch.  That patch means the tire isn't safe after 180mph so I needed new tires.  Runnin a mile event in aug I need them Now (that takes a minimium of 2 weeks to 6 weeks if UPS) so I emailed JonB. 

PS2s are discontinued and the SS versions aren't quite as sticky so Jon shopped around for me.  Nowadays  organizations won't allow 6 year old tires on the track so it's important NOT to get 4 year old tires when you buy new tires.  The tech guys go by the manufacturer's date burned into the tires.  JonB found a set that are only 1.5 years old.  Since these tires last me about 3 or 4 years the age is good.

Emailed JonB and yesterday he had the tires shipped from the nearest warehouse.

Thanks Jon
