Had a chance to spend several minutes speaking with

the very nice Michelin factory Rep at the Lexus Performance Driving Academy out at Fontana a couple of weeks ago. They really worked hand in hand with Lexus in developing their tire for the IS-F.

Not sure how many of you know that there are actually two different tread compounds used in their tire. One on the inner 1/2 of the tread and one on the outer 1/2 of the tread as the tire sits flat. They had to get these two compounds to melt together during the MFG process and to wear evenly even though they heat up at two different rates... Amazing stuff which all goes to make all of our IS-F's even that much more unique and how detailed Lexus was in designing this smile making machine!
