Identifying tire compounds
« on: September 07, 2007, 02:20:18 pm »
I have a stack of Michelin 16.5 slicks that I got from a racer who was ”retiring”.

They were all organized by compound but they got moved around and are now all mixed up. Does anyone know how I can identify the compounds?

I'd probably contact Walt Schaefer or Tom Mason direct.  The numbers change depending upon what you have, which carcass, etc.

Where are you located?

I'm in Tampa

They are all 19/67-240 rear  12/60-420 front but the "stamp" isn't the same on all of them

I think Frank Kinsey is the Michelin tire guy there, so I'd probably talk to Walt Schaefer.

But I can't find his number.  I believe it's in Road Racing World...Walt Schaefer Cycle Supply.

Or you could contact Dave Hirsch through the Bibmen website.  He will probably have some answers too.

Hope that gives you some direction.
