Cant believe the air will stay in those tyres with those crap rims on them. Looks like a speedy tyre fit to promote yourself to me. Pics of your dads car please lol
Here is the beast in question https://www.facebook.com/Charlie.Martin ... 075242319/
this is it racing at Portimao. Well i say racing it managed testing, and then in qualifying i found some more revs which might have something to do with the head gasket giving way.
I friend of mine came into the shed a bit ago as he had stumbled across a haul of Dolly wheels. so i bought a hole heap. I now have a set with Michelin TB tyres on them https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/vintag ... tyres.html
the grip is unbelievable, but they are a struggle to get the best out of, because they are over tyred really. Stopping amazing, less wheel spin, but when you lob it into a corner, it is a bit vigorous.
I have another set with Dunlop Racing tyres on. i took it to a testing day at Blyton, took of the radials and fitted the Skinny Dunlop crossply tyres and it was gorgeous, it felt fabulous to drive the handling was so light and progressive, but to be fair that is because there was very little grip. However i think these will be the best fun to drive on. I am hoping for a happy medium with the Pirelli, but importantly they should still be progressive because of the carcass shape, while at the same time give you a bit more confidence on fast roads. The Dunlop Racing is epic, but if you were going round a corner and then had to make more space for an on coming car it would be pretty scarey.
Here is the mighty Dolly having it's Dunlops fitted. I will post some pictures on the Cinturato when they are fitted. They should look great as i beleive they are original equipment (and they just look cool anyway)
