You asked, we answered. Here are some of the frequently asked questions we’ve received from the racing community. If you have more questions, contact us.
Store tyres in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated area, clean off any contamination from fuel or oil immediately as new tyre life will be improved if tyres are correctly ‘scrubbed in’. Stored tyres should be protected against environmental effects such as sunlight, extreme weather and other potentially damaging conditions such as electric motors and welding equipment which are a source of ozone.

Structural damage to the tyre can occur if pressures are too low. If racing tyre pressure is too low the tyre may experience ‘tuck under’ shoulder wear, roll on cornering, slipping on the wheel rim or excessive pressure build up.
There are no firm rules for ‘Ideal’ pressures. Driver, vehicle and circuit all have an influence, if you would like more information please contact us so that we may assist.
