Thanks for replies, all

Right now, have stock swingarm and rim; dont think that's gonna change between now and April.

Next set of tires gonna have to be stock size or close

Doubt I'll be able to outrun an H rated tire; that takes 130+ mph...probably wear out the first tires before that's a problem

Ih, and to answer the question, all asphalt for now. Some day, salt.

Would love to go back to Bonneville as an entrant, but need to get a cohesive program together before I spend the resources to make that trip

But, it's the ultimate goal...

Tire management is clutch application management.
Chicken and egg thing. You can’t establish what you need until you
know where to start.
Get to the track and get comfortable. You can’t learn how to win until you
learn “WHY” you lost. It’s a very difficult task to accomplish because
everyone you are racing already figured it out... you can learn from both lanes of every
timeslip. It’s doable, have fun!

I’ve always been a fan of Dunlop K591’s on a stock bike chassis for drag racing.
