Cool old cars, especially the Datsun.....and Michele. What kind of tires are on the Audi, they almost look like street tread?

Chewed off knob tires, cause photographer was snapping his piccies more than 6 miles from the start---therefore no knobs left.

The Quattro has a Kleber sticker just behind the door. Audi/ Kleber won the WRC in 1981. It's now a Michelin brand but no longer sold in the US. Kleber rally tires were available in the US for a couple of years.

Kleber were marginal tires but Audi had a sponsorship deal inked with the German company for 1981/82, so they were stuck. Mikkola hated them and eventually at Finland 1982, he had his mechanics 'borrow' some Michelin-shod wheels from Blomqvist's quattro (Stig was not in a werks car and had free tire choice), the mechanics claiming an innocent mix up :cool:

A good view of the Klebers:
