Sticky rubber

Good news :-)

I have just been told by my tyre supplier that Michelin are once again
making the XAS 155x13 Formula France tyre.

This is a H rated tyre using the same compound as the Pilot Cup tyres
used in the Porsche Cup.

You can now have period sticky rubber for your Elan that will fit
under the wheel arches. Availability is stated as end of Q1 2005 so
they should be shipping any time soon. I have already placed a
pre-order for a set. The only down side is that they are not cheap -
ouch! But hey with the mileage I do in the Elan they will last a while.

I will post up my test results when I get the tyres fitted and get my
Elan winter rebuild finsihed. You know how these projects tend to over
