Dunlop Car Racing Slick:

 

Dunlop slick racing tyres are offered in a wide range of sizes and several compound options,specifically tailored to the applications to which they are intended. Dunlop Car Racing Slicks are non-road legal tyres designed for dry conditions only and provide the ultimate in performance for closed circuit events.

Dunlop Car Racing Wet R92:

 

Chevron “R92″ pattern generally used for wet racing, but hand grooving can be done to modify this pattern depending on the conditions. Wet tyres are made in extremely soft,temperature sensitive compounds that generate grip with the road surface despite the cooling effect of the water. Care should be taken not to continue using wet tyres once the track surface dries as overheating and degradation of the rubber compound will quickly follow.

Yokohama Advan A048:

 

The Yokohama ADVAN A048 is a durable, economical choice of race tyre, available in a wide range of sizes for circuit racing, sprints and targa style road events. The ADVAN A048 is a reliable, tried and tested product that breeds close racing in categories such as Australian V8 Utes, Aussie Racing Cars, Porsche 944 Challenge and Improved Production Racing Association classes nationally. It’s also a winner of the Bathurst 12 Hour Production Car Race.

Yokohama Advan A050:

 

During cornering the contact patch load centreline shifts towards the outside edge of the tyre. This shift has been minimised with the A050, when compared with the A048, to provide greater control and linear steering feedback. Even heat distribution is crucial in race tyres. The tread pattern of the A050 is optimised to improve heat distribution. Centre nose heat has been accelerated while shoulders generate less heat. This provides improved performance and less deterioration at high temperatures. The sharp grooves of the A048 have been replaced by rounded grooves to disperse the load more evenly on the road surface prolonging tyre life. The A050′s stable and linear steering characteristics come in part from its high rigidity bead wire, which links the tyre carcass to the wheel, it squeezes the rim tightly and helps reduce energy loss when cornering, braking or accelerating.

Yokohama Advan Neova AD03:


The ADVAN Neova AD08 bridges the gap between street tyres and race tyres. Street tyres work well when cold. Conventional rubber compounds reach their limit during high speed driving as heat softening quickly saps the tyres ability to grip the road. Using street tyres on the track can lead to slower lap times and rapid tread wear. Race tyres work well when hot. R-spec race tyres and slicks, on the other hand, generate heat which helps them grip the race track. They work best above 60 degrees celsius. Race tyres work best in the first heat cycles, then performance begins to drop off. Using race tyres on the street is uneconomical as it can waste heat cycles and reduce tyre performance. If you want a high performance tyre that will give you comfort, low noise levels and good mileage this is not the tyre for you! Micro Silica Compound 2 controls heat and feels soft on a micro level, to grip the road, and hard on a macro level to resist deformation, heat and wear.

 

Features:

1. Racing tread pattern with continuous tread to increase rigidity.
2. Steel sidewall inserts to increase casing rigidity.
3. Show to out perform similar extreme sports tyres in cornering, braking and on dry track conditions.
4. 8mm tread depth (Unlike a R-spec tyre’s 4.5 – 5 mm) and a 180 UTQG treadwear rating so you can expect reasonable tread life.
5. World Touring Car Championship tyre technology.

The Potenza S001 is designed to combine low rolling resistance efficiency with maximum sports performance in dry and wet conditions. The Potenza S001 features an asymmetric design combining a large outboard shoulder, interlocking tread blocks and a central circumferential rib to enhance dry road steering response, high-speed stability and cornering precision. Notches in the shoulders expel water to the sides while high-angle lateral grooves in the intermediate ribs pump water into the wide circumferential grooves to help resist hydroplaning. The tyre’s internal structure features a lightweight belt package consisting of twin steel belts supported by a spirally wrapped aramid/nylon cord reinforcement that reduces rolling resistance, enhances ride quality and ensures high-speed durability. Active rubber inserts in the sidewalls near the bead areas tune vertical sidewall stiffness to blend cornering grip with ride comfort, as well as increase longitudinal stiffness to generate straight-line braking forces.
