This questrion regards track tire use. for tires im using at an autocross in sunny San Diego, would i be better off with bald avon m500s( which is an ultra high performance summer tire) or near full tread contisport contacts? (pics to come).

and these are fronts only, i'll be running PS1's in the rear

avons: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Avon&tireModel=Tech+M500 (dont look like that anymore)

Contis: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Continental&tireModel=ContiSportContact

I think this is a repost (or an amazing coincidence). Either way, I believe the concensus was to run the Avons. Just watch for wearing into the cords periodically throughout your day.
