    These tyres have all been tested, however they may be some issues we haven’t noticed. Please report any bugs you find, and if it’s in reference to any realism concerns then please provide telemetry/acceleration graphs/behavioural reports that show the correct behaviour irl.


    IMPORTANT: Running the game on a VAC secured server or time trial with activated mods can potentially result in you being VAC banned. I am not responsible if you get banned as a result of this mod or any others, remember to deactivate before racing on a VAC multiplayer session or time trial.

    1: Download a modding unlocker for the version of Project CARS that you are running. Here’s an example for 9.0 (the most recent version as of 29/01/15)

    That one is by JDougNY, there is another by Autoprophets. Both are compatible with this mod as long as you activate the unlocking mod first.

    2: Follow the instructions in that file to install and activate the unlocker.

    3: Copy the Alternate Handling Mod into the MODS folder of your game.

    4: Activate the mod with JSGME. You will get a warning that tire.rg has already been altered, click ‘yes’ on that message. It’s important that you activate the mod AFTER you’ve activated the unlocker, otherwise the mod will not work.


    You should deactivate your mods before running time trial or any VAC secured multiplayer sessions.

    1: Open JSGME.exe

    2: Press the double-left arrow. This will deactivate all mods. If you want to deactivate one mod in particular, click on that mod in the active list (right side) and click the single left arrow.

    The Team

    My testers have proven invaluable in making sure these tyres behave realistically. Without them I would not have been able to do this:

    Jussi Karjalainen

    Krus Control


    Tiago Fortuna


    If you enjoy this mod, please consider supporting it by donating via paypal, it helps a lot :)

    Long Term Plans

    I will be updating this mod over the next few months with the LT04 Drag Radial tyre and also creating some additional tyres. On the cards is the potential for a new racing slick compound, as well as some other additions. There will also be a competition pack that will use the mod tyres as available options in the pit strategy instead of the SMS tyres.

    That's all folks! This is my side project while I work with the MDMT guys on the R8 LMS mod, so be sure to have a look there if you haven't seen it already.


    See for information on becoming a tester. I am also mercilessly harassing members of as well as a few other guys in the community.

    If you have any first hand experience of aggressively driving any of the cars in game then I would very much like to hear from you, especially if the cars in question are on the list above.

    Have Fun!

    Version: 0.6
    Guys i dont even have pCars and thats is for a reason, the tire physics i see in videos looks horrible, you made me want to try the game atleast with this mod. Im very sad you didnt get the feedback you deserve for trying such amazing thing, the MX5 video you put here dont even looks like pCars to me, and thats a great achievement!
    I ll spread the word and hope you get more recognition, you deserve it, the way you explain what you did and how you did it shows the serius work behind this mod. Congratulations again and tnx, pCars should give you my $$ if i get pCars, i wouldnt otherwise.
