Michelin NISMO Racing Tires

Tire Dynamics of the Nissan GT-R LM NISMO

The Nissan GT-R LM NISMO is an artistic and scientific masterpiece.  From the fluids to the tires, nothing about the race car is boring or average.

Recently, NISMO University shared the importance of developing the right oil viscosity and why they racer is front wheel drive.

Now, NISMO University expands upon the latter, detailing their partnership with Michelin.

Down force, pit times, durability and even size are taken into account – nothing is overlooked. The video below shows how the team works together to address these variables.

When it comes to fitting the Nissan GT-R LM NISMO, both car and tires must be properly balanced and aligned . . .  (no pun intended)

I think working on the NISMO team would be a dream job.

I love the Nissan GT-R LM NISMO and the videos released by NISMO University recently are as fascinating as they are informative.
