Ya know what? talk to Roger about warmers -- I scopped a pair of Suzuka warmers from him, (basically a set of ChickenHawk with a different name stamped on em), and so far they're workin' great... and most importantly, the price was dope and I didn't have to worry about shipping.

i use DMP works good for me and for the price u cant beat it. The best warmers IMO are the ones that cover the whole wheel. But DMP also has a indictor to tell you when the tires are warm but im pretty sure all warmers have that by now.

Most of them do, yeah. I run a 200 rear, and the Suzukas cover the whole tire, and manage to get on the lip of the rim. I've seen people throw blankets over the top of the wheel to cover it, too.

For those on a tight budget, the Suzuka warmers are great. For those that want the best and longest lasting warmers, the Chickenhawk warmers are the undisputed king.

Found some Suzuka's for about 40 bucks more than DMP. I'm gonna try to get them before Nov track day hopefully. Also need to find a generator to run them I know harbor freight has cheap generators.

before you snag em online, talk to Roger. He's a dealer... at least it'll probably save you some shipping, if not more....

Upload in progress..... I'll just say, as the official spokesman for tire warmers..... They are much cheaper than all my 6 or 8 crashes... The expense is waaaaay worth it.

Loren, you've got street compound tires, no need for warmers.

Its good ammo for when she says no... The pic doesn't capture the broken frame, either, and the 3k in hospital bills. Like I said, 300 bucks goes a long way to protect your investment.
