motoiq: Not all Michelin Cup 2 Tires Are Created the Same

Very good read here.

I was surprised to see how manufactures play with overall tread width while using a nominal size 245, 265, etc. A car could be more square than one realizes when looking at listed tire size alone.

Looking over it quickly it looks pretty awesome, but should have been a video.
