I guess they offer the opportunity to race on tires not on rims will be an answer…

We should be careful what we wish for. Whilst I am no great fan of the cost and lack of life out of Dunlops (and I have suffered from a complete tyre failure), they do provide a full size range. There is a danger that a new entrant to the market comes along and produces all the big sellers, Dunlop throw in the towel and no one is left to cover the oddball sizes

A second point concerns the comment above about CR6ZZ. Does the FIA putting a stop to them prevent their use at Spa for the 6hr?

As far as Pre War Sports concerned the 18 ‘’ are good but 19 ‘’ not so good but both work
The problems were on post war cars.

In relation to the first point, the regulations for new market entrant is that they have to commit to all the smaller and less profitable sizes in order to be allowed to make the better best sellers.

On the CR6ZZ there is nothing the FIA can do, the CR6ZZ is listed in Appendix K already and this comes down to supplementary regulations as the final word.

Just for the record Dunlop L s have always been the reg tyre for FISCAR (We also now allow Blockleys on larger diameter wheels) and none of our entrants have reported any issues to date.
