Quick question on an area I'm unfamiliar with.

Is there a manufacturer out there that produces tyres rated to 500mph+?

Most interesting posts for a newbie!

An electric vehicle project interest after October.

Fastest electric of all time.

Fastest wheeldriven ( > 458 mph two way as of today).

500 mph tyres (or tires, for those in the USA).

[Either you have been chatting with Jerry Bliss or you have similar ideas after working for Richard N.].

For tyres at the present time research Mickey Thompson 29" diameter LSR (Company now owned by Cooper Tires) or chat with Tom Burkland, Rick Vesco or George Poteet.

If you're going to build a streamliner you need to design it around the tires.

British designer John Ackroyd always stated that you should start the design process by assessing where the vehicle is going to be run.
