I've heard complaints that motorcycle tires have not been improved along with car tires, so a sidecar tire might be very primitive indeed. Is it even a belted tire? If you can find a way to actually obtain some of those Michelin VR 262s, please let us know. They wouldn't answer my query about their tires for the solar race cars. I'd appreciate any good data you find on rolling resistance. Most of the research seems to be proprietary.
