I run the 265/60-15 DOT American Racer soft compound. The DOT (Department Of Transportation) spec tire is "street legal". This is what most non-IMCA tracks require on a street stock if they run DOT tire rule and an 8" wheel. American Racer and Hoosier Dirt Bozz are similar in compound and size(roll-out. It sounds like you have several different sizes and compounds. What is your track tire and wheel width rule? What roll-out are you looking for? American Racer and Hoosier are 87"-88".

ROLL OUT IS THE CIRCUMFERENCE OF THE TIRE. YOU WANT YOUR LEFTS TO BE SOME WERE BETWEEN 87 TO 89 YOUR RIGHTS TO BE 91 TO 93 IF YOUR GOIN TO RUN AT CLANTON OR LAKESIDE
