i recently changed my air pressures and was wondering if my air pressures too low ? information is below

track= 5/8 mile
banking= low
condtions= tacky
lf= 15 Rf= 21
lr= 15 Rr= 18

Should i worry about rolling the tires off the rim or will it be fine.

If the car is handling more power to you. I run as low as 15 lbs in my lr. You can always try using tubes in the tires that should help with the low pressures also. Eddie

I have had tires roll off at 18 lbs. But it was rough track conditions and ruts that caused it. I recommend tubes in the tires and this allows you to run lower pressures without rolling the tires off the rim. BTW put a half a cup or so of baby powder in the tires with the tubes. It will help keep everything lubricated and moving and not getting pinched. Hope this helps.
