I dunno what your goal is here, but I'd say you are working VERY hard on loosing support from your sponsors here

One thing that you guys should always keep in mind when you are talking about tire performance is, that there are only 2-3 manufacturers of the foam that is used to make our tires and I can promise you that all the Italian brands are using the same.

Regarding the rim, if it's not a REALLY soft or a REALLY stiff/brittle rim, it won't affect tire wear and performance the way you wanna make it look here.

If the rim was as hard as Capricorn advertises, it would break at the slightest hit. Oh, and carbon powder or beads will NOT improve the stability of a plastic part. Fibres would, but they obviously are not using fibres. Way too expensive for a wheel.

This discussion here reminds me of others a few years back, when GRP had about ten different brand names for their tires (all the same) and people would kill each other, since they were totally convinced that a Mugen Fast tire for example was ten times better than the other 9 brands

They test drivers received 2mm offset & will know soon if they are going to be available since it seems that it might be phased out with the most current car RRR EVO2 is set for 0 offset

That is based on track conditions
They track that we tested on had a high bite from the beginning so we had to decrease camber since it made the car more agressive from the start
