Trackday tire recommendation

Been out of Supermoto game for a couple of years. Want to take to trackday this month. I took her out last year trackday had old worn out Pirelli Supercorsa front and old adventure tire on rear. She did great and held her own

What's out there 17" tire wise that's not gonna break the bank for 450 EXC. I am looking in spending less than $300 for set. I usually run "A" group on sportbike, I will be running "B" on new track.

Also anyone know of great package (front/rear) deals going on? 150/160 rear


Thanks

I've always liked Bridgestones for cheap rubber. The RS10 worked good for me, but m currently sumo less but will be looking to Bridgestone again once I fix that error.

If you want slicks some people like the maxis slick but i couldn't use them after being spoiled by the Michelin slick. I've also heard of some people liking the shinko rubber. gonna depend on your need's, expectations, riding style.

I don't think I'm ever gonna race again an expect to place well so I'm okay just running on the limits of street rubber.

Just pulledd trigger on Michelin Power. GP fronts and Power Cup Evo rear. Hell of a deal, plus Michelin has a $60 rebate in form of credit card. MotoMummy is my tire go to place. Price is competitive and I usually get tiresim 2 day free shipping.
I've never tried these new Michelins. I've tried their slicks and Power Ones. Majority of the time "take offs". Been a long time since I had new rubbers on trackday.

I've tried Bridgestones and I like them. When I used to frequent Stockton I would just buy the cheapest (or on sale) stickies , all good on 450 EXC

Pirelli remains a great choice.
