Firestone our the official race tire supplier to Verizon IndyCar Series and in a follow up to our feature on Friday we have another one for you today.
Firestone don’t just produce race tires but they also produce road tires.
The Firestone race tire is obviously a slick tire with no grooves while the road car tire has the groves to allow the road car to deal with all types of weather conditions.
The Firestone race tire also has a narrower side wall compared to the road going tire. The race tire is also fatter as it has to withstand consistent hi-speeds.
