Post Press release: Dunlop Tire sponsors RochesterDSM One Lap Evo
The RochesterDSM One Lap team is proud to announce that Dunlop Tire has signed on to provide tires for the One Lap Evo X. Dunlop is sending us a set of there awesome Direzza Sport Z1 Star Specs in 265/35-18 which will work perfectly with our Rota Grid 18×9.5 wheels.

Tires, tires is what wins a race. – Robert Duvall in ‘Days of Thunder’

There is nothing more important to a race car then its tires. With a little over 2 square feet of contact patch to work with choosing the right tire can be the difference between just showing up for the race and spending some quality podium time.

There are a lot of different ways to judge a tire and none more so then dry grip. Its what everyone tests, compares, and argues about. And we were no different. Dry grip was on the top of our list but One Lap is not your typical race. Sure your on America’s best race tracks and who wouldn’t want the grippest tire you can get? But what about the autocross, drag racing, short tracks, wet, and dry skid pad events? Did you know that one round of autocrossing counts as much as an afternoon at Daytona? Did you know that the wet skid pads is just as important as the dry one? That means that even though ultimate dry grip is at the top of the list everything else on that list like wet grip, turn in, how fast the tires heat up, and how they ride need to be taken into consideration. And for the RochesterDSM team our budget, once again, rears its ugly head. So just like everyone else tuning in at home we have to be careful with how much we spend.

They definitely have enough tread to last more than a season and to not hydroplane in heavy rain.
