Does anyone remember

Post  Wolfsbane on Sat Mar 24, 2012 5:53 pm

I think it was way back in 1987 or thereabouts.

There was an article in Road & Track about a then new tire system by Avon. They had come up with a rim system that mounted two narrow tires with a high aspect ratio on high performance and luxury cars which normally used wide low aspect ratio tires. They claimed they would be less expensive and offer better ride. I believe the article was illustrated with a Jaguar XJ-S with the rims and tires fitted.

Seems like those tires would be great for darksiding. Unfortunately, I don't think Avon makes them anymore. I didn't see them on their website anyway.
