If you aren't looking to spend a lot on a set of warmers for general trackday use, I've seen people getting good use out of MJ Moto warmers.
I've got the Mj MOTO single temp
Pros: cost, good coverage that covers more than just the tires
Cons: on cold days they take awhile to heat up, not good for time it takes to get to temp on a race day

If your just looking at doing Trackday you might want to save your money. They not something you mush have. A couple laps and your tires will be up to temp and you can use the money saved on new tires, ect.... If your looking at racing then don't skimpy out.

Re: Tire Warmers??

For top quality go with Chicken Hawks. I love mine. They will hold up for years as some of the other brands start falling apart after a year or two. Check some of the racing forums for used ones.

Re: Tire Warmers??

The MJ Moto warmers just don't throw the heat like the other brands. The warm feature on the chicken hawks is tits for rain tires, or lunch time, etc. I've had an excellent season on the Woodcrafts. For the majority of last season, I ran the mj moto warmers and they don't have the BTU's or draw to heat the tire and rim nearly enough in colder and windier days. They are nice as a backup set which is what I've always used them as.

Re: Tire Warmers??

In cold and windy situations, these are a big plus in getting your tires and rims up to temp...
