The majority of people in Michigan seem to run the Michelin S-12s, front and rear (including me).  Another tire I am beginning to see a lot is the Dunlop Geomax MX-31s.  It mostly comes down to personal preference, and I am sure there will be quite a few more opinions regarding their favorite tires.

I have been using the mx 51's for two years. This weekend for the first time I tried the pirellis mid hard 554.

Best tire I've ever tried. Very good in soft conditions. But the best came on the 2nd race. When the racetrack started to be really nasty after 4 hours of nonstop races.

This tire had a fantastic response. And the front kept going where it had to. From now on I'll use pirelli.
