Anybody have any ideas as to the top tires to use for a racing version of the solstice?

I think most of the stock categories force the same wheel size, so 18" is it (assuming the production size is still 18").

I think the top brands are maybe the following:

Kuhmo (autocrossing, road racing)
Hoosier (autocrossing, road racing)
Goodyear (road racing)
Toyo (autocrossing)

Suggestions on sizes and what's available, and what's hot now (been out of racing for a few years)?

Any experienced racers out there?

From an autocross perspective, it looks like Hoosiers are at the top right now. Kuhmos are popular with those who are willing to give up a few tenths in exchange for getting a few more weekends per set. I couldn't find the stock Soltice size (245/45R18) in either brand at Tirerack, though I imagine they'll be available at launch if the Soltice marketing/competition representatives are on the ball.

Of course, the competition tire market changes every 17 minutes, so by the time any of us actually have a Solstice in our driveway the above info will be obsolete :)
