Providing tyres & support at all MSVR Elise Trophy rounds

We strongly recommend all competitors to ‘scrub’ new tyres in. This helps increase a tyre life and also its consistency over long runs.

Temperature Operating Range: 70°C – 100°C
Tread Temperature Delta (Inside to Outside shoulder): Max 20°C

Measuring tyre tread temperatures can be a useful tool for optimising the handling balance of a vehicle. Avon recommend measuring the temperature at three points across the width of the tyre contact patch (inside, middle and outer). The quoted values for temperature operating range are when using a needle style pyrometer and recording temperature at the base of the tread. The inside shoulder temperature should be hotter than the outside shoulder. Surface temperture readings will be approx. 30°C lower, but can be used as a guide.
