What air pressure for a road course track day?

I have Nitto Invo's 275/315's and was wondering if anyone knows how well they will perform and what is the recommended air pressure to set them to for a road course track day?

it really is a trial and error thing. basically you need to figure out what temp and pressure you want to leave the track on and adjust accordingly due to air conditions and track conditions and your driving

i adjust after every session.

The drag strip is like sniffing glue, it's cheap, it's a decent buzz, it doesn't last long and they are all the same.
Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next
Track fix.

I would imagine that as they heat up the pressure goes up. What is the max that they will go safely? Is there an optimum high temp to run at or is that also something that depends on many factors? Thanks!

Are you trying to prepare for the 19th? IF so wait till you get there, find me and I will explain it then. There are soooo many factors but I will get you set straight, or twisty depending on your point of view.

Your coaches will also mention this, at least they should, in your classroom that day.

Just remember your tire gauge that day.
