GRP Multi Ring TC Foams

GRP Multi Ring TC Foams

Mirage Racing have started to promote these new multi ring touring car foam tires from Italian tire maker GRP. The Multi ring technology, essentially 5 rings of different tire compound on the one wheel, allows you to run a softer grade tyre for better forward traction while the structure allows for less lateral movement so you can run a bigger diameter tyre without suffering from traction roll and therefore having the advantage of longer runs with less wear. The foam comes pre mounted on  these new wheels which are made with a special plastic material with a reinforced yet flexible structure to allow maximum strength and performance at any temperature and track.
