SAE Formula Student
Avon Tyres Motorsport actively supports SAE Formula Student program which challenges Universities and Colleges around the world to design and build a single-seat race car to race against each other in endurance, handling and speed tests. We offer teams specific tyres at discounted prices and a detailed tyre data package which includes spring rates, cornering force and self aligning torque data. This technical information can be found in our download resource section.
We offer teams four sizes of slick tyres that have been specifically designed for the requirements of a Formula Student car. Tyres are available in super soft A92 compound which is proven to be effective. Note:- Previous years we offered teams A45 compound but this is now no longer in production, A92 is slighty harder then A45.
These sizes are:
|6.0/16.0-10||Slick and Wet||3.4KG||No|
|7.0/16.0-10||Slick and Wet||3.5KG||No|
|6.2/20.0-13||Slick and Wet||5.2KG||Yes|
|7.2/20.0-13||Slick and Wet||5.7KG||Yes|
|8.2/20.0-13||Slick and Wet||5.6KG||Yes|
Note - All weights are total theoretical material mass of the tyre, there will be slight differences as the tyres are all handmade so will have slight variations
6.2 and 7.2 are the most popular for 6" and 7" wide wheels .
