Racing Tyres - Useful Tips
Correct Tyre Selection, Fitment and Maintainence is essential.


  • A large selection of tyres is available to suit all types of motorsport competition
  • BEFORE selecting your wheels, establish the best tyres for your car or area of sport.
  • Widest and softest is not always the most suitable
  • Discuss the best option with one of our motorsport specialists


  • Check wheel width and diameter are correct for tyre size being fitted
  • Check for Drive 'arrows' or if tyres are directional they must be fitted the right way
  • Avoid damage to the bead area
  • Ensure alloy wheels are not porous. (This is less of a problem with modern alloys)
  • Follow ALL Safety procedures for bead seating and inflation
