Re71R are prolly the fastest tire short of Hoosier R7/BFG R1 I have tried. Found them to be quicker than the Toyo RR (not a typo). But agree they wear fast!

Bimmerworld sells used Conti slicks (225/45/17) which is a touch slower than the R7 and lasts a while. For the money like $75 each, they are not bad. I got a set and now have 15 heat cycles and they are fairly consistent (not as fast but last a while for when I am doing testing/DE and not TT). Almost as fast as RR (per the data/laptimes) and hold up the entire session vs fall off towards the tail end like Re71. But RE71s are the bees knees, unreal for the cheater 200 rating

Yeah RE71R not a tire worth running unless required by class rules. Fastest in class for sure but the downsides are huge!

It's the perfect TT tire....in the right situation.

For instance the club I run with gives you 2.5pts for the Conti scrub or -2.5pts for the RE71R. So, you play the points game and run the RE71R as your TT only tire and practice on something less expensive and/or something longer lasting (NT01, Conti scrub, etc).

I agree and that's my point. Your class rules make it so that tire is the fastest based on the points penalty or if the class has treadwear rules. For the TT class I run there's no points, just power to weight ratio (and some other rules clearly) so my best tire is a DOT and then I have to factor in traffic. I'm going to start lapping the field on my 2nd to third lap so I need a tire that will work on lap 1 and if I mess up I can go one more lap. That tire is a Hoosier A7. A Pirelli DS is faster but because it's not DOT it's like a 50 hp penalty the A7 results in a quicker lap.


For someone who's doing an HPDE, the RE71R is a poor choice, but not because it isn't a fast tire.
