1 tire with cover, 3 used tires.

What exactly do you think is happening in a picture of them setting up tires? They're changing the worn out tires.
I don't know honestly mate, it's just strange how I can see the tread on the furthest tyre in the pile very clearly, but not on the two nearest tyres above it.

But that said, if it's true it used Cup 2s, and it looks like it is, then it puts pay to all the BS "Trofeo R is stickier than Cup 2" arguments once and for all, along with all the BS "All Cup 2s are equally sticky" arguments by boyko and friends. Here is a version of the Cup 2 with the same performance as a damn racing slick.

You can't see the tread, but you can she the tires have the exact same yellow markings on them in the exact same spots...

Yeah, that's a good sport actually. I take it you mean the leaves stuck to them?

Looks like some bespoke Cup 2s have Kumho V720 ACR syndrome then and here lies the end of all 'no Cup 2s are as sticky as Trofeos' arguments.
