Guys I need some help here. I run Hoosier Dirt Stocker tires (265/60) on a 10" rim. I tried Hoosier recommended tire pressures but the car will not hook up. What do you guy run? What is the least amount you would put in the RR w/o a beadlock? Guys around here run some really low air pressures. I looking for a place to start. Thanks for any help. Deed

hey deeddude. i have ran 10 psi in the right side and gotton away with it w/o a beadlock. but it was on a sloppy wet track. as it becomes tacky go up 1 psi at a time untill you can feel sertain that you wont have any trouble. and as it dries out you can go back down in psi unless the track is rough. can you do any thing to help secure the bead to the tire . such as weld a bead on the in side of the wheele or ***** the bead to the wheel or any thing like that.

here is another suggestion, go to other racer and ask, and then watch who is doing the best and start with what they told you . a true race that wants some good compition will share some of his or her secrets but not all, a racer best friend is knowlege and help from other racers. good luck to ya and i hope i have helped you out. charie norris

dreamcatcher, Thanks for the input. I did what you said awhile back. What these guys are running conpared to what hoosier says is a 8-10 psi difference. I'm just looking for a place to start. Thanks again. Deed
