Ok .. but the tires that come in Pietsch are not the same as arriving on the market ... are not the matrix or other. The only ones that come with precisely shore are UFRA ... shame that the circle is very fragile.

Default explain

Please explain what you are speaking of?

Robert tires are no different that what we get here in the USA. Please explain what you mean about fragile circle?

Typically, an official pilot, has tires "selected "... "fresh" and not old, etc.. for example .. (I'm talking about tires in general, not specific brands)). In the shops shore tires are very different .... Get a pack of gum instead of 40 shore and find them ..... 41-43 shore. Also .... happens that in a rubber rings are glued in a different way. For example, hard rubber outer ring in the right ... in the left soft rubber or otherwise..In GRP such often find this defect.

Many pilots say that they are good tires CONTACT perhaps the best on the market today. The only ones that guarantee the shore are the UFRA. These tires have a defect that UFRA have a delicate circle. Even with a not strong impact break.

The selected tires, engines, etc. ... have always been intended for official pilot. Is not it? In the past it was so!

I hope that your tires are done ad hoc as I'm currently trying to use the Italian championship.

I apologize for my English but I hope that I explained.

Until recently I used the shore .. matrix different from rubber and rubber rings, which is undermined! Even Dirk W. runner has been using the Matrix ... but I do not think they are like the ones that I use!

lol

I can say that contact tires are what I would equate to kowahara a couple years back. The last tires I got were super fresh and super sticky.. Better most tires I ever got ahold of... IMHO

Default High Cost?

Guys you are to kind

I only wish the exchange rate was euro!

Contact Tyres are made in England, where they use the pound

Do the math for today: euro=1.44US....gbp=1.64US, so for every dollar spent made in Italy brands like Matrix, Capricorn, Ennetti, SRC, etc gain $.20 on average. At $10.00 that's a $2.00 disadvantage for Contact.

Maybe this helps you understand.

We thank all of the racers supporting a great product, enjoy!

As they say "If you are running Contact Tyres, see you in the Fast Lane!!"
