Bridgestone R10

Anybody know where to get them? I got two sets at a track day from the on site tire guy, but was looking to order a few more sets to have put away for next season and can't seem to find them anywhere. I go through a rear every weekend I go to the track (I should probably lighten up on the throttle, but what fun is that), and my current set only has about half a day left in them.

I absolutely love them btw. I was dragging my pegs on my second session with them (without the slightest loss of traction), and I dropped 3 seconds off of my previous lap times on on a set of PP 2ct.

Could just be me but comparing the R10's to the dunlop D211's (on the track)- bridgestones felt softer/flexed more, turned in quicker, could feel them bite and drive more. Dunlops offered very slightly less feel/grip but I was getting more life out of them vs the stones. I have never tried the Ntec's or the latest version of the US D211's but hear they are both improvements over the standard previous generation 211's. I'm a slower pace advance group rider at trackdays, tire grip is not the limiting factor of my equation. Plan is to go back to dunlops next year.

I think either would be overkill for the street but whatever floats your boat. Be sure to let them warm up.

I could probably get the hook up for ya. PM what you're looking for and whatever else may be relevant.

I've ridden both the GP-211's and the R10's. R10 is the winner in my book. Much more confidence inspiring and awesome grip. I'm opposite of bme on how each of them turned it, I felt the dunlops fell over quicker, probably due to the higher profile of the tire, but the stones felt more grounded in holding corners and exiting. I always felt I had to stand the bike up so much more on the Lops before I could get on the gas.

Very much depends on how fast you are and the track you are on. I have ridden both, I personally liked the Dunlops better and ran about 1 second faster on them as well. I run 1:44's at BIR.
At DCTC a 1.1 mile 20 turn course where 1:05-1:08 is my norm I feel equally confident on either
