FAQS

How do I care for my competition tyres?

Tyres are best stored in a cool, dark and dry environment away from direct sunlight, high temperatures or high voltage machinery. The life and performance of competition tyres will be improved if they are 'scrubbed in' before being run at racing speed.

Where can I get my tyres fitted?

Tyres can be professionally fitted at both Queensland Raceway and Lakeside Park. We recommend using our fitting machine. Rims should be carefully latchecked for cracks, rust or any damage which may prevent an airtight fitment.

What tyre pressure should I use?

The correct pressure varies according to driver, car and track conditions; it is often a matter of personal preference, but sufficient pressure must always be used to avoid structural damage to the tyre.

What is Heat Cycling?

All competition tyres benefit from heat cycling. Heat cycled tyres show more consistent performance, prolonged life and reduced wear. Heat cycling the tyres consists of one or two cycles of running the tyres under load without sliding or unduly stressing the tyres. At Queensland Raceways the following is a suggested Heat Cycling Procedure. Each cycle should consist of the following steps:

  1. Mount the tyres set the tyre pressures at the recommended cold tyre pressure
  2. Run 4-5 laps of the circuit at approximately 50% of normal race speed and
  3. Reset tyre pressures to the recommended hot tyre pressure
  4. Run several consistent laps over a period of 10-15 minutes commencing at approximately 50% of race speed and gradually building to 80% of race speed.
  5. Do not over stress tyres and avoid driving over kerbs, ripple strips or any other undulations on the track.
  6. Remove tyres from the car or raise the car or axle stands and allow the tyres to cool naturally to the ambient air temperature.
  7. Maximum conditioning occurs when the tyres are cooled unloaded and after a period of 24 to 48 hours.

What type of tyres do I need?

A large selection of tyres is available to suit all types of motorsport competition. BEFORE selecting your wheels, establish the best tyres for your car or area of sport. Widest and softest is not always the most suitable. Discuss the best option with one of our staff on 1800 RACERS or email us at dunlop@qldraceways.com.au
