Today's sports cars, compacts and performance sedans are extremely versatile. The tire they ride on has to be the same. The new AZENIS RT-615K offers a world spec construction, featuring a new and improved motorsports-grade cap compound that effectively maintains grip as tire temperatures increase. In addition, the special 8/32nd molded tread design reduces the new tire's tread squirm while providing efficient mileage for street use. A solid center rib significantly reduces wheel spin by increasing the tire's contact patch void ratio under heavy acceleration. Understanding the tremendous demands the AZENIS RT-615K will experience, new proprietary casing design, bead apex and turn-up technology allow for the elimination of heavy steel construction, resulting in an 8% reduction in unsprung tire weight.
In its category, the Azenis RT-615K performs well in wet conditions. 8/32nd tread depth and optimized aqua tusk positioning, allows better tread adhesion as it delivers ample wet grip performance. Matched with three high void low turbulence grooves, consistent, and in some cases, increased, wet weather speeds can be achieved as potential hydroplaning tendencies are reduced.
The result: A tough, durable, street-sensible tire, whose 200/A/A UTQG rating, make it a great match for the autocross, time attack, or drift competition.

Competition tires are built with a highly sophisticated tread compound. This compound is capable of sustaining traction throughout a much wider temperature range, but is also extremely sensitive to the first heat cycle of its use. During this cycle the tread compound stretches as it heats.
Our heat cycling system ensures consistent results by maintaining key conditions during the heat cycle process. The system generates uniform heating and progressive temperature build up throughout the tread. The benefit of this process is a tread compound that lasts longer and provides better traction. All competition tire manufacturers recommend a heat cycling service. Have your competition tires heat cycled today and be race ready!
Heat Cycling is available for $15 per tire.
