New tyres for 2024

In this section we have collected the new tyres for this year - this can be useful as these tyres are yet to be tested, but are usually based on a previous model that has most likely been tested at least a few times. As these new tyres are being developed on the basis of the previous model, they will most likely be even better than their predecessor in some aspects and thus deserve your attention.
