CT Racing in Cali. They are the west coast Pirelli race tire dealer. Dont know if they will ship to east of the Mississippi. Pirelli has this whole east coast west coast thing going. Sportbiketrackgear would not ship to me out here in the west.

i guess give them a call and see what they say. Perhaps there's another dealer for the east coast besides sportbike track gear.

Have you used these before? I personally didn't have any luck with these...I was really surprised with how little grip they had.

I know where to get the discontinued k449 compound if your interested.

I haven't used the superbike pro's. I have used the SC2's they grip like crazy. The pro's are touted to be near their grip level with better wear. I have a few friends who have even raced on them with no complaints about their grip level. You must be pushing really hard on them to have grip complaints.

+1 on this! Been riding on Dunlop slicks for a few years, decided to try these out..... I know they are not the same tire.... figured they would be ok, but no, they were not even ok.

These are eerily smooth when the rear brakes free..... but the issue for me is they break free far too early trying to power out of turns. Going back to Dunlop soon.

Contact James at Good Grip Racing. He is out of St. Louis and is a Pirelli distributor for race rubber. He SHOULD have pros in stock.

+1 Just threw on a dunlop gpa medium take off today, after running q3's and boy oh boy its a new ball game . Even with its half life yet and a few heat cycles it has heaps of grip and wants more.
