How many Heat Cycles can I get out of a tire?

Heat Cycles is not an issue with Dunlop racing tires as it would be with other brands. The more important factor is how much tread is left on the tire. Stable fact: thicker rubber has more grip and develops more heat, thinner rubber has less grip and runs cooler. After each session you have less grip. As the tire wears out, you have less and less grip. It could be slight or it could be large.

Some riders call it heat cycling, but, in actuality, its the rubber getting thinner and thinner. It truly depends on how much the tire is worn out, and your specific demands for grip that determines when the tire is not usable for you.

How much life can I get out of my tires?

Using the data above regarding Heat Cycling, it’s really your judgment call. There are too many variables such as the bike size, bike setup, track, weather conditions, riding style and much more.

What compound of tire is better in hot versus cold weather?

As a general rule, softer compounds cold tear more easily. In the cold weather, you should run a compound that is more hard than soft. You can find compound information for each tire here http://dunlopracing.com/technical-info/ and downloading the Compound and Sizing Information PDF.

In hot weather, you need to run the recommended compound for the track for that particular tire.

If you go to http://dunlopracing.com/tires-products/ , you can locate your specific tire, click on that tire, and and the available compounds are listed along with specific Track Data.

How many laps can I get out of the tire?

There are too many variables to truly answer this question; bike, bike size, bike setup, race track, weather conditions, rider style, lap times, etc. No one can judge how many laps you will get, as good as you.

How long will it take to ship to my house?

We do our best to process and ship all orders placed by 1pm central time. Shipping put of our Nashville TN or Reno NV warehouses,  most orders will arrive in 2 days. Some orders will arrive in 3 days if in NY and above, or NM, CO, MT, WY, ND, SD, NE, MN or the western part of Texas,   For example, if you call on a Monday before 1 pm Central Time, and you live in the East US (excluding NY and northern states), you will receive your shipment on Wednesday. We provide you, via email, your UPS tracking number at the time of shipment, so you can track it.

How do I get a discount?

We have 1 price across the board for all riders.  In 2011 we decided to lower the price of our USA product, then in 2016 we again were able to lower prices again to the rock bottom.  This made it necessary to remove any discounts and make the pricing the same for all rider.   Thus all riders pay the same price and those that win races can get contingency to help support their program.

How do I get free shipping on my order?

Discounts are offered on shipping for large orders, 30+ tires. Please call for details. .

How do I store my tires over the winter and will they be ok?

Over the winter, your tires should be stored in a place where temperatures are above 38 degrees. DO NOT store them next to electric motors or near chemicals like fertilizer. They produce ozone and will deteriorate the tire.

Tire pressures for Q3-Q2’s? And do I use a tire warmer on them?

If you are riding on the street, read your owners manual for recommended tire pressures. If you are riding on the race track, a good starting point is 32 front and 32 rear cold. After riding on the track and before you go on the street, let your tires cool, then adjust back to the pressures recommended in your bikes owners manual,  Warmers are optional, but if you choose to use them, you can get tire warmer recommendations here http://www.dunlopracing.com/Warmers.pdf .

Can I prepay for my tires and you bring them with you to the track?

You can not prepay for your tires and have them brought to the track. You can either order and have them shipped directly to you or, buy them directly from our service truck at the track. There is an abundant supply at the track. If you need something special, you can call and order ahead of time. Otherwise, get your tires at the truck early, if you are unsure if they will sell out.
