Just got my .875 rear wheel cyls. It will be interesting how this works out. Going from .500 to .875 is quite a jump. Will go ahead and install them till adjustable bias valve shows up. Once it's all together I can bleed the system one more time. Steve (CTR)

I have spent hours developing a set up for the 6 X 12 tire. Chasing the big adjustments it came down to very small front camber and rear toe settings to fine tune. Doubled the life of the tires. Steve (CTR)

Thats a decent amount of miles! I ran them once and burned through a set in about 3k. Alignment needs to be spot on! haha

I have several sets of that type. 10 X 6, 12 X 5.5, 12 X 6 the 10 X 6s will go on the rally car once it's done. For testing I'm running the 12 X 6 for test runs. A brake issue has kept me off the highway. A not very old new Mk3 remote booster, once by passed good pedal. I'm now redesigning the hand brake system. Will end up with 700 master, KAD magnessium four pot, Wilwood adjustable bias value, Wilwood .625 hand brake master followed by .875 wheel cyls. I hope it works it is my best guess. Parts coming from all over maybe soon I can do more than burn outs with them.  Steve (CTR)

I’m averaging 7-8k per set including a couple of autocross days and weekly twisty mountain road driving. I’m sure you could get 10-12k with a softer right foot.

Rosebud's getting new shoes. I love these tires. This is my 3rd set.
