Default What tire

I would contact a tire dealer.

I like Larry Hodge in La Place, Il. He is very helpful.

larryhodgeracing.com , I think

He is a Hoosier dealer and a class racer.

Hey Doug how you doing :?: I've always thought the car was over tired and slowing you down on the 60' times. I've got a brand new set of TOYO's 14.5X32's roll out 97.5"yet to be installed on my car. My friend Mike Jorden bought a set od 16X32's for his car last yr (55 shoebox 2650lbs) he picked up .002/.003 over same size GY's, 1.27 60' times, with a 427" sm/blk on alcohol, it runs low 5.60's all day long inthe 1/8 mi.

Default tires

Zip update on my car i got a set of RHS heads from Chad Speire he ports them to 245cc runners, only 1 problem my shaft rocker bars won' bolt up to these heads! hope they are as good as they look very nice set. I ran Toyo's last year and thought they were very good, size 33x17x15 but are pretty well worn, so i'am looking for a new set of tires, my rims limit me as they are 16" wide i should sell them & buy some either 14" or 15"wide. Bruce told me to try Goodyear 2252 d1 they are 16" tread & 102" rollout & weight 35.3#. I read some of the fast ADRL cars were using a M/T 3910w it is 14" tread but 34.5 tall & use a 16" wide rim tire weights 39#, Toyo quit making drag tires! just got my P/G case recertified can't wait to see if the car improves.
Any other ideas Zip?
