So far. Cold pressures 32F 32R on S02's. At Buttonwillow I ran them at 35F x 35R, but we didn't have a chance to go all-out, so I'm not sure that we might not go up from that. When we hit the "scenic mountain tours" where we press a bit over the "posted" speed limits, I have been maintaining the 32F x 32R.

For the Dunlops we ran 32F x 32R on the streets as well, then for road track runs cold 37F, 35R, trying to hold pressures at 42F x 40R hot (road course) and 40F x 37R at Auto-X school. We have little real track experience, so have no idea if these are ideal or not. I did like the road course pressures.

Next driver school, Buttonwillow again, I am going to try 40F x 35R to start with on the S02's, just to see what happens.

Also of note with the S02's, is the car does not follow the grooves and changes in pavement anymore. The Dunlops wandered around a bit, and had a poor on-center feel, the S02's seem to have that squared away quite nicely.

I've been following your posts on tires and wheels and am getting close to wearing out my dunflops (00 mcoupe). I am also getting ready for my first BMWCCA safety school. So figure my wife and I will I'll burn them up then (I should have been a farmer since I can plow with the best of them!). For curiosity, and I'll understand if you don't response since there is a difference between asking about the bait you use and your favorite fishing hole (smile) but what tire pressuers did you use
