Tire testing: The best part of my job.
I relocated in 2001 to South Bend Indiana to work for the Tire Rack.
Years of autoX with Windy City BMW club, in my 1976 BMW 2002.
I knew about the Rack, but I had no idea how much fun I'd have.
Lets take the company's sedans and SUVs out on the test track both in wet and dry conditions, and test many of the tires we offer - take them to the limits, and bring them back. Things you'd never do on the road, unless you were avoiding an accident.
Check out the track testing video!
We also use a road evaluation loop where ride quality and real world road noise can be percieved. Check out the road testing video!
This makes my recomendations first-hand examples.
If you help me understand what you'd like or need from your tires
- I'll help you find the right ones!
