    Yes, we have our 2008 race tire distributor pricing and they went up quite a bit.

    We have yet to decide track side pricing. We are curious to see where Dunlop and Pirelli will be for LRRS. We have to be in that ballpark.

    I should know in a few weeks what track prices will be.

    Right off the bat, I see no LRRS listing. I'm HOPING that LRRS is covered by CCS, right Dave?

    Also, no novice contingency. More incentive to move up to amateur/expert.

    Eagerly awaiting prices.

    For Superbikes, not SMR. It is a different build, and though Michelin messed with it the test riders all went back to 17" so Michelin builds 17".

    Riders have run Michelin Superbike 16.5 on a SMR, but it is not advised. The casing is very different that a standard 17" SMR, and the tire was designed for a heavier, high HP bike.

    There is a new 16.5, and a few new 17".

    The 1200 / 1800 in both TD and SC are gone and not going to be replaced. It's a shame because the SC was an awesome tire. It was strictly an issue of production capacity.

    The new DOT's are due for fall, but I would bet that if the new Dunlop NTec is as good as they are bragging about that we will see the Power One in our warehouse MUCH sooner.

    Whats the point of releasing new tires at the end of the season?
