- The Lakesea 07R drift tyre was designed for drifting but has the added advantage of being ideal for track days and suchlike.
- Newly developed wide steel belts that are stronger than normal cord, offer better wear and performance.
- Long lateral groove reduces hydroplaning and provides excellent driving stability in wet conditions.
- Unique rib groove inhibits irregular wear by enahancing rigidity of the tread.
- Deep tread depth improves mileage and increases longevity.
- Jointless nylon cap ply & layer increase durability at speed and in wet conditions.
- High density casing ply improves wear resistance.
- Treadwear indicators regularly informs drivers of proper rotation timing.
- Designed & tested in Japan where drivers speak very highly of the grip and performance of this tyre.
All tyres carry a speed symbol in the form of a letter indicating the maximum speed for which the tyre is intended. The speed rating is the maximum speed a tyre is tested to and its corresponding Speed Symbol. These are tested speeds, not recommended speeds. It should be noted that speed ratings only apply to tyres that have not been damaged, altered, under-inflated or overloaded. If the tyre has been cut, punctured or has sustained other damage then it no longer retains the tyre manufacturer’s original speed rating, even after being repaired.
The Lakesea 07R (265/35/18) drift tyre is rated W which is rated up to 168 mph or 270 kph.
The tyre Load is the number after the tyre size, written before the speed rating, and is a numerical value used to compare relative load carrying capabilities. The higher the tyre’s load number, the greater load capacity it has. The Lakesea 07R (265/35/18) has a tyre load index rating of 93 which means that the tyre has the ability to carry 650kg’s at the tested speed rating figure.
An under inflated tyre can overheat, wear out the shoulders of the tread quickly, puncture easily and give a poor handling car, with slow and heavy steering. An over inflated tyre wears the tread centre faster, can overheat and makes the steering feel light and vague, again giving a poor handling car. Tyre pressures should be checked when cold and kept to the recommended pressures.
