Michelin 17/65/15 F83's ????????
A friend of mine just came across a set of Michelin's that are hard to
describe but they were referred to as tires that said "for comp use
only" and of course I had to go and check them out. Much to my
delight, these tires were bran new and had a good 1"1/4 of tread on
them in a Potenza style pattern. The side wall of the tire was just
about as stiff as the center of the rest of the tire and I could almost
sit on the tire (not on a rim) and it could support my weight (205lbs).
My buddy got them thinking he was going to mount them on his Camaro but
they were not even half as wide as the tires on his IROC-Z. My best
guess is that they are a full out race tire for rally cars or a tire
for Ice racing. Any thoughts or has anybody used them before????
