Need a new track tire. Fast Intermediate

I've been running Pirelli Superbike Pros for the last 2 seasons and I love them. I guess they've been discontinued. I ride in SoCal so it's typically 90+ degrees during track season. I'm a fast B slow A guy and use warmers. Suggestions on what I should run that might be comparable to the Pirelli red stripes?

Re: Need a new track tire. Fast Intermediate

The superbike pros got replaced by new SC3 compound and you can actually get the rear in a 180/60 unlike the pros. Currently, I run an older superbike pro front from last year with a SC3 rear that I got this season. SC3's are my suggestion

I used to run Michelin SuperSport EVOs, but now run Power Cup EVO DOTs. What a huge difference.

I tried the Bridgestone R10 DOTs with warmers my last track weekend and they were fantastic. Soft front medium rear. Front still has at least another weekend but the rear is smoked.

as in the sipes are gone? That tire will continue to grip beyond the sipe depth indicator. I wore mine down to about 1/16" before they started to spin in practice. Alot depends on track surface too.
