Wondering what tires people are running at the track - more interested in profile than brand.
Are you guys sticking with stock profiles, or going for taller in the rear?

Usually I go taller in the rear, just wondering whether the R6 being lighter etc benefits from going taller as well?

apologies if this has been covered, I did a quick search but seemed like most tire threads were talking about brands etc rather than profiles!

If you perform a search on "tire profile" you'll find a few limited threads.

If I am running track day tires I still with stock profile. Something like the Q3+ has the same overall profile as stock. When I race, or run slicks at a track day, my front stays the same profile while the rear bumps up to a 60. Provides a bit quicker turn in, but I notice very little difference overall. The main reason is the brand of slick I run is only available in a 60 vs the stock 55. Therefore, it's kinda forced and not by decision.
