Our driver was sponsored by Yokohama last year.... and they were much better than the silverstones.... He only requested 035 softs in 195-65-15 and 205-65-15 sizes.... Sidewalls were very stiff.....

We'd groove them for the really muddy/soft conditions.... not sure if it helped.... (I was learning what our tire guy was doing)..... At each rally, we'd use about 4-5 sets per race... as each set saw about 3 or 4 stages....

They still had lots tread... but since they were our sponsor..... we had a good supply of tires..... afterwards, lot of other teams would buy our used tires....

Year before.... we mainly ran silverstones (soft, medium and hard compound)...... mediocre tire.... at best..... lots of flats.... but the evo is an open class.... probably not a good combo..... lower hp car or novice driver probably would have been fine.....

The only michelins we ran were winters..... such as C5's and another discontinued one.... g something....
