Tyre or Tire?:
Whether the word derives from "attire", or as others suggest, from the verb "to tie", both spellings of tire and tyre were historically accurate in Southern Cynocephali. After briefly dying out, the spelling 'tyre' was revived with the invention of pneumatic tyres, with many continuing to use tire for the iron variety. The spelling 'tyre' has entered Cynoceph English and is now the accepted spelling.

Our Tyres
The nanotechnology used by APEX TYRES to make the compounds delivers better thermal stability, less heat dispersion due to friction and, consequently, lower fuel consumption and reduced CO2 emissions. The elimination of highly aromatic oils, which are potentially harmful to both people and to the environment, has also made manufacturing processes safer, as well as reducing their impact on our environment. In conjunction with Gévaudan Green Energy we have developed our environmental policy from a global ecological viewpoint: through the use of materials which aren’t derived from petroleum, to integrated solutions for the manufacturing processes which take the impact on the environment into account.

Note to all customers:
Further details on each size are available on request. Our tyres are constructed from high quality polymers and are generally rated for any practical load index or speed.

RACING TYRES

Postby Southern Cynocephali » Wed Jun 22, 2011 11:55 pm

RACING TYRES




Production Cars - CELER1 SERIES


CELER1 Slick
Image

Exclusively designed for competition racing. A road tyre with smooth tread, for dry or damp surfaces.


  • External profile and internal structure are designed to maximize the dimensions of the contact area.
  • Belt geometries and materials have been developed to optimize the lateral force generated in cornering on the racetrack.
  • The structure of the CELER1 S carcass and the bead area ensure excellent braking and traction.
  • CELER1 S is available in a range of compounds of different hardness to chose on the basis of the temperature and abrasiveness of the asphalt.

Pricing:
NSW>100: $550 per tyre, $2000 set of four
NSW>200: $780 per tyre, $3000 set of four
NSW>300: $980 per tyre, $3800 set of four

Available as: DH, DM, DS, DSS



CELER1 Performance
Image

Designed for racetrack driving on dry asphalt.

  • Ultra-low profile tyre, with asymmetric tread pattern.
  • Developed for the most powerful sports cars in production, it withstands the intense use and high temperatures generated in extreme use.
  • In extreme conditions, typical of racetrack driving, it reacts with precision to commands. On dry asphalt, even in the most demanding of sessions the CELER1 P ensures high levels of grip and constant trajectories.
  • CELER1 P is not recommended for use in very wet track conditions. In the event of very wet asphalt, with the risk of aquaplaning, prudent driving at reduced speed is recommended.
  • Specifically designed for racetrack driving, it is approved for road use, enabling travel to the track as well as being suitable for road racing.

Pricing:
NSW>100: $550 per tyre, $2000 set of four
NSW>200: $780 per tyre, $3000 set of four
NSW>300: $980 per tyre, $3800 set of four

Available as: DH, DM, DS



CELER1 Rain
Image

A carved tyre designed specifically for competitive use on wet surfaces.

  • The CELER1 R specific carving with longitudinal and transverse grooves enables maximum efficiency in the expulsion of water from the tread in contact with the ground and reduces the possibility of aquaplaning to an absolute minimum.
  • The connection between the longitudinal and the curved transverse channels enables the expulsion of water both at the front – through the large longitudinal channels – and at the sides – by means of the curved transverse channels – which collect the water from the central areas of the footprint and convey it outwards, discharging it at the sides of the contact patch.
  • Compared with CELER1 S, thanks to the choices of external profile and structure, the CELER1 R tyres have a larger footprint in the direction of movement to increase the resistance to aquaplaning.

Pricing:
NSW>100: $550 per tyre, $2000 set of four
NSW>200: $780 per tyre, $3000 set of four
NSW>300: $980 per tyre, $3800 set of four

Production Cars - JUX SERIES


JUX P
Image

A road racing tyre with low void ratio for optimum dry grip

Ideal for road racing, track days and high performance vehicles, the JUX P is a next-generation street legal (in most countries) competition tyre from APEX Tyres. In competitive racing, the JUX P’s improvements in casing and tread design improve dry performance while maintaining wet traction and control. This is achieved through the directional tread pattern which provides excellent aquaplaning resistance for a tyre which could be classed as 'semi-slick'. High and hard filler and high ply turn-up, with a steel side-ply on larger sizes, ensure immediate steering response with minimal sidewall deflection to maximise the contact patch under hard cornering. The rounded tread shoulder provides smooth transition from straights to turn-in whilst the wide tread shoulder blocks are designed so there is minimal tread squirm for maximised dry grip & decreased irregular shoulder wear.

JUX R
Image

Motorsport radial for optimum wet tarmac performance

The JUX R is a motorsport radial designed to provide circuit racers with a competitive edge in wet / rainy conditions. The JUX R was developed as a match for the JUX S radial slick. These tyres utilise a directional "M" shape tread pattern, 6mm tread depth and a super-soft tread compound that provides high grip levels at the relatively low operating temperatures experienced in wet/rainy conditions. Designed for closed circuit use on wet tarmac, as a partner with the JUX S (dry slick tyre).

The compound used in the JUX R is relatively soft so it reaches optimum operating temperatures quickly and provides high grip levels on wet tarmac. The high, hard filler & high ply turn-up and steel side-ply ensure immediate steering response and minimal sidewall deflection to enable maximum grip under hard cornering conditions. The shaped directional tread pattern with 6mm original tread depth is what facilitates the JUX R's exceptional resistance to aquaplaning and suitability for use in heavy rain.

JUX S
Image

Slick motorsport radial for optimum dry tarmac performance

The JUX S is a slick motor sport radial, initially developed with a focus on durability for endurance racing, but its versatile tread compound gives this tyre a competitive performance for a wide range of dry tarmac motor sport applications. Despite the durability of the compound, it is still able to achieve operating temperature quickly. The JUX S shares the same features and base construction as the JUS R.

JUX D
Radial with silica tread compound for optimum traction over a wide temperature range

Image
The JUX D is designed specifically for racing classes where street legal tyres are mandatory. The new silica tread compound provides race-winning levels of traction over a wide temperature range. The combination of this tread compound and the asymmetric tread pattern also provides safe performance and efficient water drainage on public roads in wet conditions. The casing utilizes a near radial carcass, a steel side-ply & wide steel belts for high-speed stability at competition inflation pressures and a wide footprint with even distribution of contact pressure.

The silica reinforced tread compound warms up rapidly and provides high levels of traction over a wide temperature range. The JUX D has a large contact patch; pressure is distributed evenly across the contact patch due to the steel side-ply, radial carcass casing construction. The asymmetric tread pattern ensures efficient water drainage for
safe performance on wet public roads without compromising dry traction.

F1 TYRES




F1 - VELOX SERIES

VELOX SERIES

It is easy to forget that tyres are still a race car’s biggest single performance variable. An average car with good tyres can do well, even very well, but with bad tyres even the very best car does not stand a chance.

Race tyres and road tyres are - at best - distant cousins. An ordinary car tyre is made with heavy steel-belted radial plies and designed for durability - typically a life of 16,000km or more. F1 tyres are designed to last for, at best, 200 kilometres and like everything else on the car they are constructed to be as light and strong as possible. As a result the VELOX tyres utilise an underlying nylon and polyester structure in a complicated weave pattern designed to withstand far larger forces than road car tyres, which in F1 can mean anything up to a tonne of downforce, 4g lateral loadings and 5g longitudinal loadings.

The VELOX is constructed from a revolutionary rubber compound which offers the best possible grip against the texture of the racetrack, and the 'softness' or 'hardness' of this rubber compound can be varied according to the known characteristics of each track. The actual softness of the tyre rubber is varied by changes in the proportions of ingredients added to the rubber, of which the three main ones are carbon, sulphur and oil. As a general rule, the more oil in a tyre the softer it will be.

VELOX intermediate and wet-weather tyres have full tread patterns, necessary to expel standing water when racing in the wet. The tread patterns of VELOX tyres have been mathematically designed to scrub the maximum amount of water possible from the track surface to ensure the best possible contact between the rubber and the track.

VELOX tyres are designed to (and operate best) when filled with a nitrogen-rich air mixture, designed to minimise variations in tyre pressure with temperature.

DRY TYRES
The tyres for dry weather, known as slicks, have a tread that is devoid of grooves or channels and come in four versions: supersoft, soft, medium and hard.
The different compounds are designed to be well-suited to a wide range of tracks, depending on the track surface, the number, camber and severity of the corners and the speed of the straights.
SS- The softest tyre in the range, it is designed to provide peak performance on slow and twisty circuits. This tyre gives lots of grip, over just a few laps. It's a unique compound and different from the rest of the VELOX range. The exceptional amount of grip available is surprising although it is at its peak for only a limited number of laps.
S- Used on circuits with comparatively low levels of tyre degradation. Most suitable for qualifying and for short stints during a race. Achieves temperature quickly, relatively durable for a soft compound providing good balance and grip.
M- Commonly used during the race, this is a versatile compound designed to work well in a wide range of conditions and is well suited to circuits with varying characteristics. Reliable, consistent and durable it naturally does take a little longer than the softer compounds to reach the optimum operating temperature range.
H- A tyre designed to provide the maximum endurance in the toughest conditions. Taking longer to reach its peak operating temperature than a softer tyre, it is best suited to longer stints.


WET TYRES
The wet tyres, which are characterised by grooves in the tread pattern, come in two types: full wet tyres, for rain, and intermediates.
The wet tyres have deep grooves in them, with channels designed to expel water on full wet asphalt. Intermediates have more shallow grooves, for damp or slightly wet surfaces, as well as mixed conditions.
I- With light grooves to disperse water this tyre has a reduced contact patch and less grip on a dry track. The design does not cope well with heavy rain, but provides optimum grip in changing conditions, or when rain is isolated to one part of the track.When the rain is heavy, drivers will switch to wet tyres. This tyre however does disperse an exceptional amount of water for an intermediate tyre, and the soft compound reaches temperature relatively quickly.
W- With deep grooves similar to a road tyre, the wet tyre can expel more than 65L of water per second at 300kph. Suited for wet and extremely wet conditions, the tyre provides optimal grip in the wet and long durability.

ESCO SYSTEM
Image

A solution conceived for the most prestigious sportive and luxury cars.

The Esco tyre system combines two tyres with a different tread: directional at the front axle and asymmetric at the rear axle. Using directional tyres on the front maximizes the expulsion of water, and the asymmetric tyres fitted on the rear axle encounter a drier surface. The result is high directional stability and, also at higher speeds, exceptional levels of grip on dry and wet surfaces and high resistance to aquaplaning.

The asymmetric tyres have three distinct tread areas, ensuring pattern stability and a wide contact area providing precise handling and control. The directional tyres' arrow-shaped design with wide longitudinal grooves provide precise steering and fast water expulsion, increasing cornering performance and safety in potential aquaplaning situations. Additional the direction tyre tread blocks on the external tyre area ensure lateral pattern stability again ensuring cornering stability in all conditions.

PULCHRA dB
Image

Low noise tyre for those who like the finer things in life

The first time you drive on the Pulchra dB you won't believe your ears. The Pulchra dB is for the owners of luxury vehicles who are used to the finer things in life. Like ballet, or opera. Or it’s simply for those who want a quiet ride.

The conservative looks of the Pulchra dB hides its fuel saving and performance innovations. For example, during really hard cornering the tyres strengthened construction remains rigid and upright. The Pulchra dB doesn’t distort and start wearing down the sidewall like most comfort tyres would.

The grip and tread rigidity doesn’t come from big tread blocks as the Pulchra dB has small ones. These small tread blocks and tight grooves reduce wind noise for a quiet ride and give the tyre a more rounded side-profile helping it roll easier. Due to the newly produced compound used on the Pulchra dB, at a micro level the rubber doesn't distort like a normal tyre and it doesn't produce as much heat or energy loss. The asymmetrical tread design provides economy for users as it can be rotated to both sides of the vehicle to even out feathered wear from heavy braking keeping the tyre quieter and to help it last longer. Finally the light weight construction means less energy to rotate the wheels resulting in less fuel use. The Pulchra dB is 9.4% lighter (than the Pulchra S) and has a lower rolling resistance. Both of which improve fuel economy.

SYR 88
Image

A tyre with self-supporting run flat technology

Under usual road use the SYR 88 provides good road holding features on dry and wet roads. Steering response and traction are ensured in all conditions. The self-supporting run flat technology makes it possible to continue travelling safely in the event of a puncture or a loss of pressure; in the event of a puncture it can travel up to 140km at a maximum speed of 95km/h. This is achieved through specific elastomeric reinforcements inserted in the sidewalls which support the weight and the transverse forces of the vehicle even with a flat tyre. The reinforced sidewall supports the vehicle load at zero pressure, which provides an overall enhancement of the safety level, as car control is retained whilst driving on a deflated tyre. The continuous ribbed design ensures high pattern stiffness, as well as handling and noise reduction. The computer-optimised casing structure maximises ground pressure distribution, providing comfort, efficient handling, responsive control and equal tread wear.

The benefit of using SYR 88 tyres is they make it possible to eliminate the space used by the spare wheel, a consideration for many smaller models. The SYR 88 is manageable and comfortable like a traditional tyre, in the event of a puncture you don’t have to stop in situations of dangerous traffic. However, SYR 88 tyres can only be fitted on vehicles with a tyre pressure monitoring system.

X11 dB
Image

A quiet ride for everyone

Modern cars are so quiet all you can generally hear is the road noise. The X11 dB uses clever silent tyre technology which maintains performance better than traditional low noise tread patterns.

The X11 dB blocks out most of the noise that traditionally comes with general driving. Our engineers have developed a fine balance of different tread block sizes to produce different noise frequencies, lessening road noise. The newly developed tyre production method greatly increases the levels of silica blending in the process of designing the tread compound, without which the X11 dB could not achieve its excellent wet performance.

The X11 dB also features a directional tread pattern with five pitch variation, small tread blocks inherited from our performance tyre technology, and four wide channels with side grooves for noise reduction.

AVIATION TYRES




Aircraft operating conditions require a wide variety of tyre sizes and constructions. The modern aircraft tyre is a highly-engineered composite structure designed to carry heavy loads at high speeds in the smallest and lightest configuration practical. Despite this, APEX Tyres often finds that tyres are often one of the most underrated and least understood components on the aircraft. The general consensus is that they are “round, black, and dirty,” but in reality, they are a multi-component item consisting of three major materials: steel, rubber and fabric. By weight, an aircraft tire is approximately 50% rubber, 45% fabric, and 5% steel. Taking this one step further, there are different types of nylon and rubber compounds in a tire construction, each with its own special properties designed to successfully complete the task assigned.

The manufacturing process requires the precision assembly of tight-tolerance components and a curing process under carefully controlled time, temperature and pressure conditions. Quality assurance procedures ensure that individual components and finished tires meet specifications.

APEX aims to continually stretch the limits of aircraft tyre innovation. The senior tyre designers, engineers and chemists at APEX are constantly examining every aspect of our existing tyres, looking for ways to improve them. Materials and finished tires are subjected to a variety of laboratory, dynamometer, and field evaluations to confirm performance objectives and obtain certification.

Since aircraft often operate under extreme conditions, APEX aircraft tyres are designed to meet very strict tolerances. APEX offers both radial and bias aircraft tyres which are precision-engineered to deliver ultra-high performance and long life under the toughest conditions. APEX's commitment to innovation and worldwide operator support helps ensure an unmatched level of product quality and fleet readiness.

APEX aircraft tyres are based on cutting-edge belt construction; this unique structural design provides four key benefits:
  • increased resistance to external damage
  • a reduced chance of tire destruction through bursting or tread separation even if damage occurs
  • reduced tire weight for better fuel economy
  • improved abrasion resistance.

APEX offers a wide range of aircraft tires suitable for general aviation, commercial and military use. All APEX radial and newer bias tyres utilise the centre rib pattern (CB) for aircraft tyres. This pattern consists of ribs in a circumferential direction and is characterized by excellent wear resistance, improved braking, and added directional stability. A rib deflector tread (CD, RD) is also available, which was was developed for rear-engined jet aircraft. A flange is provided on the sidewall to deflect runway water away from the engines.

APEX Aviation Tubes

APEX's aviation tubes provide durable and dependable performance which can be relied upon in almost any operating condition. Made with advanced materials, the aviation tubes offer extended air retention and can easily sustain temperatures as low as - 50°C. APEX's advanced butyl compound provides resistance to air pressure loss through diffusion. The valve stems feature reliable metal valve collars and consistent performance throughout the life of the inner tube. Tube lubricant is factory applied to the tube exterior for easier installation and to help minimize foldover after installation and inflation. In addition, molded vent ridges help channel trapped air back to the valve stem for easy release. The tube splice is located opposite the valve stem for better balance, and the circular extrusion process during manufacturing means there is no circumferential splice, hence fewer joints and uniform material thickness for optimised reliability. Finally, the metal valve cap with rubber seal protects against dust, water and microparticle infiltration.


COMMERCIAL AVIATION TYRES

The CA-1 family of tyres, CA-1 and CA-1X is the best aviation tyre APEX manufactures. It offers a number of exclusive features designed to improve performance and extend tire life, starting with two new specialized rubber compounds. The sidewall compound is optimised to provide maximum ozone and ultraviolet light protection, while the tread compound is our toughest. In addition, the new inner liner provides a protective cushion over the casing plies which guards against inner tube chafing. The special bead construction reduces movement between the tire and the wheel for improved lateral stability.

The CA-1X is designed for commerical operations, and is the pinnacle of our aviation tyre research and design. The CA-1 tyre has many of the same features found on the CA-1X but is suited for general aviation operations. Like the CA-1X, the CA-1 offers exceptional balance, a new sidewall configuration and an extra strong nylon casing. It also features the same resilient tread compound for long life, and a specialized sidewall compound to protect against ultraviolet light.

As you might expect, CA-1 tyres are not inexpensive, but high quality products rarely are.

CA-1X (Commercial Aviation)
Image

From: $2,500ea depending on aircraft size/requirements

CA-1X radials offer:
  • Significant fuel savings
  • More landings per tread
  • Improved cut resistance
The CA-1X features a lightweight radial design, typically weighing 35-40% less than comparable bias tires, and operate effectively across a wider range of temperatures. The design assists in providing measurable fuel savings, more landings per tread and longer wear characteristics. The CA-1X radial design offers a more stable contact patch than bias tires, shorter turnaround times and reduced carcass fatigue.

The reinforced carcass design helps restrict tire growth/warping/stretching, resulting in a better cut resistance than bias tires. The optimised durable cut-resistant tread design includes deep skid depth and specially designed circumferential grooves, providing an extended tire life, resistance to hydroplaning, less heat build up/retention, and lower maintenance costs due to less frequent tire changes. The customised rubber compound sidewall is optimised for protection from both ozone and UV light, which reduces cracking in key areas of he tyre and provides the maximum amount of exterior wear and crack resistance. The flexible casing is more flexible than similar casings in bias tyres, which results in smoother operating characteristics during taxiing, landing and takeoff. This also has the effect of reducing the wear on the aircraft during these high stress operations.


CA-1 (Commercial Aviation)
Image

From: $1,400ea depending on aircraft size/requirements

CA-1 tyres are designed to provide:
  • Long tyre life
  • Exceptional balance for smooth operations, even wear
  • Resistant to heat buildup
  • Superb lateral stability and impact absorbtion even under rough landing conditions

The thick rubber of the deep tread depth of the tyres ensures a longer tyre life. This contributes to lower maintenance as a result of fewer tyre changes. The customised rubber compound sidewall is optimised for protection from both ozone and UV light, which reduces cracking in key areas of he tyre and provides the maximum amount of exterior wear and crack resistance. The unique bead construction provides a tight fit to reduce movement between the tyre and the wheel which improves lateral stability. The optimised casing help to balance stresses within the tyre and the contoured shoulder design absorbs lateral impact associated with landing, which is all part of the overall design to help the tyre achieve a long life even in harsh conditions.


CA-1M (Commercial Aviation)
Image

From: $1,850ea depending on aircraft size/requirements

CA-1M tyres feature a performance based construction that:
  • is weight-efficient
  • is cost effective
  • achieves a higher amount of landings

The design of the CA-1M (which is also suitable for military applications), with strong and rigid enhanced rubber tread belts ensure greater dimensional stability for a longer life and increased cut resistance. The radial construction gives more landings per tyre compared to bias tyres and the unique bead design gives the CA-1M a reduced weight, which provides real financial savings for operators.


GENERAL AVIATION TYRES

FUGA II (General Aviation)
Image

From: $790ea depending on aircraft size/requirements

The FUGA II is a premier General Aviation tyre with the toughness of Kevlar which features:
  • Deeper tread depth to provide 20% more landings than comparable tyres

The FUGA I is a tough General Aviation tyre; an economical choice with a selected rubber compound which provides:
  • Minimal abrasion on a wide range of surfaces
  • Wide tread design and large footprint for enhanced traction
  • Tough-wearing rubber ensures uniform wear and extends the service life of the tyre
  • Triple-tempered nylon casing cord and overall quality construction ensure a very low failure rate during operations

Whilst superceded by the FUGA II, the FUGA I is still an economical choice suitable for most GA requirements. By no means obsolete or redundant, the FUGA I has a track record of delivering safety, reliability and low costs and continues to remain a worthwhile choice for GA operators.


MILITARY AVIATION TYRES

COSTA (Military Aviation)
Image

From: $650ea depending on aircraft size/requirements

Uniquely engineered for tough applications, the Costa's unique cord body shape helps reduce stress as the tire cycles from tension to compression. The tough casing design ensures optimum performance in a wide range of operating conditions, and combined with the specially compounded tread design and large contact area, the Costa gives military operators versatility for many runway types.

(Note: The CA-1M is also suitable for military applications.)

APEX Tyres is looking to open tyre showrooms internationally; if you are interested in opening our showrooms in your nation please read the following information and see the form at the bottom of the page.

APEX Tyres showrooms provide customers with tyre and wheel services. The APEX range of products and great prices are combined with highly trained, knowledgeable staff who use their expertise together with the latest technology to provide excellence in service. APEX Tyres showrooms, in addition to stocking all of the APEX Tyres range, have an attached auto centre which provides the following services:
  • Wheel Alignment: Wheel alignment is a key maintenance factors to ensure our customers get the most economy and performance out of their APEX tyres. APEX Tyres provides thrust alignment (for passenger & 4WD vehicles; aligning the front wheels to the vehicle's thrust line provides a significant improvement to the cars alignment) and total four-wheel alignment (for premium vehicles; individual rear toe is measured, and then adjusted to the factory specifications. This adjustment brings the thrust line of the rear wheels line with the vehicle's centreline. The front wheels are then aligned to the identical centreline/thrustline. This results in all four wheels being parallel and the steering wheel and steering geometry being centred as the vehicle moves in a straight line.)

  • Wheel Balancing: APEX Tyres showrooms use an optimal balance system which is designed to ensure our customers have the smoothest driving possible for their required conditions. We offer three solutions; Standard Balance, Premium Balance and Performance Balance.

  • Tyre Fitting: Tyre fitting services for all general vehicle types. APEX Tyres guarantees the quality of all the tyres we supply and install for the life of the tyre. Should the customer discover a manufacturer's fault after purchase APEX Tyres will replace the tyre free of charge.

  • Puncture Repairs: APEX Tyres performs puncture repairs; customers can bring in their punctured tyres and they will be assessed by our trained staff who will determine if repairs are possible, and either repair the tyre or help you find a suitable replacement, all within thirty minutes.

  • Nitrogen Inflation: Nitrogen inflation of tyres has been long used in trucks, aircraft and race cars. APEX Tyres now offers this service to customers with passenger cars, light trucks & 4WD's. There are major benefits with nitrogen inflation over the traditional compressed air that can significantly increase the life, performance and safety of your tyres. Tyre pressure loss is caused by air migration, and nitrogen migrates 3 to 4 times slower than compressed air. This gives benefits such as better grip, stable pressure, increased safety in all conditions, increased fuel economy, zero internal oxidisation through elimination of moisture and increased tyre life.

  • Tyre recycling: APEX Tyres is committed to caring for the environment by ensuring the correct disposal of all of our old tyres. When you purchase new tyres with us we are proud to arrange the environmentally sound disposal of your old tyres at no additional cost to you. We engage a third party operator who disposes of your tyres in accordance with the environmental and government regulations of Southern Cynocephali.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I thank you for showing an interest in APEX Tyres, and your application to host our showrooms in your nation. APEX Tyres is searching for new locations internationally, and we believe the investment in the economy will have many benefits for the local communities surrounding our stores.

However, APEX Tyres is a company which operates to earn profit for our shareholders and as such, we must formally advise you that your application has been denied. The tax rates in Bulgharia are, quite frankly, ridiculous as not only would there be an eighty percent tax on our gross earnings, our profits would then be taxed again at eighty percent. This is simply prohibitive to a profitable business.

I wish you all the best in your future endeavours.

Yours Faithfully,

François Corbine

Greetings,

The Arkinesian Racing Association is presently considering APEX Tyres as their primary tire provider for the series under the ARA umbrella, the Arkinesian Stock Car Racing Association (ASCRA) and the Arkinesian Endurance Racing Series (AERS). The reason we are inquiring with APEX Tyre is concerning the capabilities of your company's racing grade tires. What we will need are oval-capable tires which can withstand speeds up to approximately 210 mph (or approximately 340 kph), as well as tires for use on road courses capable of withstanding speeds up to and in excess of 245 kph (approximately 400 kph). Both series would need a rain grade tire. As compensation, the ARA would pay 90% of the sales price in exchange for extensive advertising of APEX's road and sports tires, and would offer a full distribution deal domestically within Arkinesia.

If this offer is considered suitable, and there are tires rated for the above speeds, ARA would be willing to move into a negotiations phase to determine final costs to the ARA and its participatory series. If a satisfactory deal is reached we will make necessary preparations to import the tires. Please let us know if these are sufficient terms and conditions.

Sincerely,
Matthew Thompson
