Fat Semi Slicks

March 31st, 2010 by admin

When I sold my old Work Equip wheels, I changed the direction of my MX-5 from a street car that looks cool and handles great, to a track car that handles great and performs well. And as such, the 949Racing wheels needed some high performance tyres. With the size I had planned to run not being readily available, I called Taleb Tyres to help out and order a set of brand new Toyo Proxes R888s. The size I went for is 225/45/15. Pretty wide for a small MX-5.

Fitting them to the 9-inch wide 6UL’s wasn’t a problem for the Taleb crew.

They make it look soo easy.

The 6UL have twin valves, and before the car hits the track I’ll fill the tyres with Nitrogen.

Fat rubber always looks cool.

Lucky? Let’s hope.

Now to fit them to the car :)

    These are awesome Mark! Would love to see the MX-5 again.

    Love all your other photos as well, especially the ones at the zoo and the setup of this website is great. Keep up the good work.
