Thanks for putting up with our SSC tire test at the practice on Saturday. It was very helpful.

Does anyone have any contact with people at Falken? I tried to email them thru their website but it failed to go thru. I'm wondering about an ETA on their 305/30 and 315/30 19 tires.

Is there a change to their PAX with a 2 second faster tire?

SSC is in with other classes paxed at Pro's (if we ever have one). So, the Pro Solo Indexes might need to be addressed. SEB doesn't handle that.

Correct. SEB has nothing to do with index factors.

I’m hearing mid summer at the earliest for the larger sizes. Maybe the smaller sizes being out in time makes all 660 sizes legal for 2020?

What were the results of the testing you guys did?
