We'll be supplying one of the test cars to NASA for tire testing in the next few months. A few different cars I think, their driver(s). From there it's up to NASA to decide what points value to assign. Based on my preliminary runs, it will likely end up a 7pt tire like an NT01, but that's just a guess.

Interesting that they are noticeably narrower and heavier.

It's not that the 205/50 RC1 is narrow - it's that the 205/50 R6/SM6 is freaky wide.

Yea.
Like mount it on a 9" 6ul and it doesn't look weird, wide.

Excellent, next thing I was going to ask is if they would work well on a 9"
