Sorry - been away from electronic devices, and on my mountain bike for a couple of days - which was blissful (when not trying to get off and crawl at 20mph!). There can be no reason for a change of width to the front tyres causing the car to pull to one side. Alignment for sure.

Not sure why this would manifest itself upon a change of wheels/tyres though. What happened?

for the moment I am using the AVON ZZR (I got them with my new wheels, so the toyo are sleeping for the moment).

Today was my first experience whit the AVON tyres on track. And I am NOT impressed, but I have also decided (from now) to drive with DPM off, so it's hard to really compare with the Pirelli. Maybe I don't have the correct tyre pressure.

I was more impressed by the difference between "pirelli with road pressure" VS "pirelli with track pressure" (WOW effect). But driving is feeling and experience, not sure that my feedback is really significant.

So I will finally test the R888r maybe next week or in May for Magny Cours.

Concerning the target pressure :

so 32-34 psi could be a good start.

So :

- My problem with steering wheel alignment was due to the tyres or the wheel ballancing

- I have just tested the Toyo yesterday, I am quite satisfied for the moment : hot tyre pressure 35PSI front/rear

- Gain of 2 seconds on my previous best time
