Hello everybody,

I have a question related to the tyres models.

I noticed there could be several manufacturers for one class.

For example Michelin, Hankook or Dunlop for the GT.

In pCars2, is there a model for each manufacturer or for each class of vehicule ?

No, the cars are using the same tire compounds in one class.
AFAIK the different tire brands are part of the liveries and had to be added for licensing reasons.

I noticed this, although how does this work with the fictional liveries? For example the #45 T-MANN BMW M6 GT3 has Hankook tires but surely there's no licensing issue there? Also I'm sure I've read that the tire data was gathered from Pirelli so I'd have thought fictional liveries would run Pirellis? Not that I'm complaining of course, it's great to see such little details included!

Probably a case of artistic freedom.

Whatever happened to the Pirelli liveries? I noticed the M6 was missing them.

Yeah, since the Formula X has Yokohama tires, that is probably the case.

I thought it is only the M6 GTLM with these, not the GT3?

I thought I recalled seeing Toyo but maybe than was another Sim.

I might have checked the wrong car.
