Default Tires at the 12 hours of Sebring





Went to my first day of 12 Hours of SEBRING today stopped by the Michelin tire supply tent now that they are the tire sponsor this is what they brought to support all the race series, the smell inside the tent was great

Any photos of the Dunlop tent? The media was making a big deal about their new compound.

I'll have to show that to my wife and tell her it's someone else's garage.

Some of those will fit my base Carrera 991 track car, right? I mean, I have wheel studs after all.

I was talking to the Michelin guys down at Daytona and what an operation......38 sets of drys for each team.......I forget how many rains.......and a dedicated mounting team for each class.

Probably should have counted the # of trailers that they brought. It really was an impressive display of support.

I wonder where the dividing line is between the WEC supply and the IMSA supply.
