    Pirelli

    Hi all

    Has anyone else experienced a blow out on their wheelchair tyres - or was it just me in clipping the kerb ?

    It could also be your tyre pressures, and are you SURE that you put them on the right way round?

    Whatever the reason it's defiantly your fault, not theirs ;-)

    Perhaps you should ride shotgun with Rory so you can do a quick re-inflate of his tyres!

    I recon it's that you are cutting the curbs a bit to much, stay in-between the white lines and less speeeeeed. You could try a bit more down force on the rear and higher pressures, as this would reduce the sliding on faster bends.

    Taking[ on Roy as shotgun could llead to serious skid marks!
    I think I I'll have to adjust the spoiler on the faster bends
    The trouble is with this weather - do you use wet tyres or dry tyres?

    Depends if you have a good pit stop for tyre changing. Do they do all terrain tyres as well? Laila

    I'm with Laila, all terrain tyres if Roy's anywhere near, and a good set of mud guards.
