The Toyo RR is Toyo's latest version of a D.O.T. road racing dry tire. I would not buy an R888 and the RA-1 full tread is only good in the wet, to drive it in the dry you would need to shave it so stay with the RR, 38 to 40psi Hot is a good temp coming off the track.

They are Toyo's Proxes RR slicks. Just thinking that a slick would not be a good choice on a cold track that has been dormant over winter. Just looking to have a good day. Don't want to ruin my day with the wrong choice of tires.
Ok now I get it. Yes what Alberto and Frank said. Like any other track day just work up to speed and let things warm up ( Car/tires, Driver) Have fun and enjoy the day.

I have left tires in un-heated conditions for the whole winter and have not seen any issues with them. What you really don't want to do is cause any flexing of the rubber when they are really cold.
You want to treat race tires gingerly - don't throw them around or bounce them on the ground when it is VERY cold, they can crack "or pop the sidewall".

I put my good tires in plastic bags and store them inside in the basement for the winter, not sure it makes a difference but i do it.
this is far better than what most do....
