Hey all,

Given that the M&H racemasters are almost impossible to get a hold of now and look that way for atleast the coming future.  Anyone had any experience with a similar tyre or any recommendations, street/strip tyre.

me as well. or maybe a good grippy tyre in 205/70/15...something that is road, but mostly track worthy.

 can't beat the look of the racemaster.

I use the Avons on my 911.  The only issue with them is that they are a tarmac rally tire and  have very stiff sidewalls.  They do make the ride much harsher and stiff sidewalls are not ideal for straight line performance

but maybe better for a street driven bug... I must say I am tempted by them. but then on the other hand I don't want to completely half-ass it... which is a bit what a M&H racemaster could be defined as, already.  Grin

Vredenstien Classic Sprint are a reasonably priced alternative for a street tyre, old style tread with a modern compound, but even less race oriented (sticky) than the Avons.

x2 on the vredestein classic sprint. I changed from Pirelli Cinturato P1's to Vredestein classic sprint (195/65 to 185/80), big difference! in look and feel.
I don't have enough power to spin them, but that might say more about the power of my engine than about the tires  Cheesy
