Got another ? on these tires I've started running them on a 3300 lb factory stock last week.The car felt real bouncey and I'm not sure about air pressure .I was told they ned more air than the goodyears we were using.I've been running 16 rf 14 lf and 15 rear and local mod drtivers are saying that about what they run. No beadlocks allowed I was thinking about taking them up 2 lbs all the way around just wondering what those of you who use them think.

No there new super chain link tread dirt tires.We were running goodyear short track specials and they went to the hoosiers this year by june 1st.the car drove fine wih the goodyears on it. I tryed the hoosiers last week for the first time and they s--cked.The car felt like it had basketballs for tires .I run them the same pressure as the goodyears 14--16 all around.I think I'm going to try 2 lbs more air.A couple of the local mod drivers said that was about what they run theres at on an 800 lb lighter car the mods at our track ran these Hoosiers last year.

these tires are are horrid, they are the worst sidewall made and they are WAY over priced.

We run them in UMP and they can be a drag to mount and unmount. Sorry to hear that yall cant run the goodyear anymore.

I would probably try a little more air.

I know if we drop below 8 in a mod they are a hand full.
