Our track doens't allow it. IMCA tires are too big for me anyway.

The guy I sold my old car to runs them. It's a mustang. Had to cut out the fenders a little and change the rear gear. He loves them. I think that the wider tire just gave him a bit more confidence. There was another pinto that came around once in a while that ran 15" tires that made it look like a 4WD but I guess he didn't care because he was always in the top three.

hoosier daddy i run I.M.C.A tires on my ministock the track allows them but nobody runs them i personally couldnt tell any difference unless it was a dry slick track
then they helped just because i think they were a little softer then the street tires
however i did have to change my rear gear

Most of the guys at my track switched to 15" tires 7 or 8 years ago. We used to run the IMCA tire, but now we run a Hoosier Dirt Bozz because of the better grip.

They make a IMCA dirt tire that durometers about a 40,which is alot softer than a reg. IMCA tire and still is the same in size.
