    Semi-Slick vs Track Tires?

    Title says it all. "Automatic by weather" usually puts on semi-slicks, but my intuition says that track tires (which I presume are slick) should offer more grip. Any thoughts?

    Semi-Slick is better. The Track name comes in a sort of roundabout manner, assume your car is delivered with the Summer tyres (on another car that might be P Zero), and you want to take it to a track, so you slap on some better rubber, aka Track tyres (on another car that might be P Zero Corsa), which are better suited for track usage but are still road worthy tyres. Then for ultimate performance you'd go full Semi-Slick (on another car that might be P Zero Trofeo R) which is all about maximum performance and road worthiness be damned.

    Note that I used the Pirelli tyres as an example of the progression on another car, we're not talking about the same compounds at all.

    Thank you very much for that question, and also thank you, of course, by the answer. Very helpfully, because i thought the same, track tires better than semi-slick
