Check it out, now you can run the tires the big guys run, and save 100.00 a corner while they last!

Anyone KNOW the difference in compound/construction, between "Rolex", and "Cup" tires?

I'm going to call the product manager, and see if I can get a better description of the tires. I'll let you know if I get any good info. I may have to buy a set of these for my Supra even though I just bought a set. I should be due for a new set come fall. Carl

Thanks. I was on hold for Jeff for quite a while and could not wait any longer. My limited understanding is that the SGS Rolex tire is a true slick without any steel and slighlty softer compound. And it has cool white letters.

That is my understanding as well. I expect the GAC tires to be an RS03 with a little longer lasting compound(plus the Steel belt as listed), pretty appealing, but wish I knew how much longer wearing. Wish I had some 18s for my widebody FC, I'd be all over the 285-30-18s, or the 305s. The thought of Hoosier performance with Kumho durability is pretty exciting.

The last time they ran a sale the tires were gone in just a couple days. If you guys want any you better get on it.

Ancient thread, but if anybody has one (or possibly 2) 225/45R15 GAC tires, I can use it. Decent used is fine.

Did you try John Berget?

This wouldn't happen to be the "Greendot" that used to auto-x an early vette back in the late 80's early 90's and then ran an FC at Waterford is it?
