Track tire.

I am going to track tmr. I have a set of new DWS on my VMR 701. And I still keep the OEM bridgestone runflat on the stock wheel and The rear is about to worn out. Which set is better for track? Does the tread influence a lot on the grip in dry?

The dws will be better, but neither will be fantastic...how often do you plan on tracking, and what kind of tracking

how worn are the bridestones? I'd think those would work better.

The rear is very close to the worn out indicating line (apologize I don't know what the line exactly called) on the tire. Does the tread affect a lot on the performance in dry?
