We ran the wrong ones. We ran michelin gravels on Friday's shakedown stage and they were fine. The shakedown was already chewed a bit when we got to it and run in the afternoon when it was relatively warmer.
Saturday, we were going to change to snow's as we didn't have any soft gravel tires and there was frost on the service area road. We didn't have time, and went out on what was on the car. We DNF'd on SS1 apparently where Pat had his adventure.
we ran kumho tyres. very pleased with the way they handled. took quite a few hard hits to the rims and tyres with no flats. good traction on the loose and chewed up stuff. the difference was running down in the start order- things were loose and warmed up by the time we got there.
