Hi i am planning on racing in the xr2 championship this coming season but am having trouble finding the corect tyres the regulations say it needs to be the kumho ecsta v700 k9a compound but all the companies i have found that sell the tyre the compounds are k21 soft k60 medium and k90 hard can anyone tell me if any off these are correct cheers
Hi SandyReid65 I also searched high and low this time last year for these tyres (XR2 newbie last year). Found a dealer in Inverness who could order them specially but prices were way above Wheels Around. The other benefit to supporting Wheels Around is they will keep coming to the races so you can replace a punctured tyre on the day if needed. Plus they balance the wheel with proper sticky weights and will do them overnight if you leave the wheels on sat after testing. All in all, glad I ended up using them last year - very friendly and helpful, even on busiest race weekends.
thats correct its Ronnie Thom and his wife that are there on the race weekends. If your buying the tyres from them, they will also flip them on the rims so you can rotate them between races free of charge! Cant say fairer than that. They are located near the bridge of Earn if you need to get hooked up between meetings.
