We thank you for your article headed “Getting it right” in the January issue of MOTOR SPORT, but unfortunately the gremlins were at work and we misled you on two points. First, the XWX is suitable for speeds in excess of 130 m.p.h. and not 120 m.p.h., while the tracking on the BMW 2500 should be parallel to 1/16 in. toe-in and not 1/6 in. using our XAS tyre.
Finally, the XAS/XVS is safe for speeds up to 130 m.p.h. and not 113 m.p.h.
