A 55 profile works very well for handling. That being said, if you can get a 190/55 I would do so. I am stilll working on a stack of tires that are 180/55 and plan to go 190/55 as soon as I am done with my tires.
I would not use a 190/50 again. I like the faster turn in on the 55 profile. But like Vash said, I don't get much life out of the 180/55 on the track.
Vash: Did you get confirmed for VIR for March 24 and 25? Sorry I haven't been posting here much. Had a Jennings GP date and a lot of work to get ready for it.
