Early 80's Goodyear tyres

Discussion in 'F1 2012 Mods' started by aagancia, Mar 12, 2013.

  1. Something for the vintage car lovers...
    Early 80's Goodyear tyres

    *includes with and without "EAGLE" on tyre wall
    *options have red marks (in case you forget what you fitted)

    I'm not exactly sure when these tyres were used. These tyre walls were used from the 80's to the early 90's.
    Some teams had the "EAGLE" on, some did not.

    The tyre treads were based on cars of 1983. The wets are actual Goodyear "Gatorback" treads. I don't think they had inters back then (I may be wrong), so I used the AVON treads used in historic races.

    I've also seen these tyres fitted the other way around, with the tread apex pointing backwards. I'm not sure which way is really the correct way.

    These may differ from what you remember in the early 80's. It was a time where F1 was very dynamic and open to various technologies.(which made it more interesting)


    thanks and enjoy.:)

  10. You're welcome. Fits your beautiful cars quite well:)
     
  11. Thanks to your screen shots, I noticed something I forgot to do on those tyres. I forgot to make the tyre wall textures. What I released had pure black color behind the Goodyear logo.

    I'll release an update soon.
