I have a set of pirelli superbike pro slicks that I wanna throw on my gen4 for an upcoming trackday... The only issue is its a 180 rear. The only reason why I would do this is they only have a couple of sessions on em and I'd hate for them to go to waste. I'm concerned about the handling and TC issues. Any help or opinions would be much appreciated.

I don't see it working well. 180/55 are to fit a 5.5 rim not a 6. The tire will flatten out. I hear guys doing that with rain tires though and it works well.

doing it to drag my Gen 1. Tire is mounted and all, the contact patch in the middle is huge, but there is not going to be much on the sides. Tire is a Shinko for reference

Wrong size for a 6" rim (at the track), though, awesome tire for a trackday only bike (non-race).

Ran the 180 on my Gixr750 (5.5 rim), run the SC2 front though, not the Pro Slick Front. With warmers and correct pressure squeezed 10 trackdays outta them. Best bang for the buck setup.
