i wouldn't suggest running the am racers if you don't have to they are a pretty hard compound they will last a while if you don't abuse them but myslelf if i could run any racing tire it sure wouldn't be that one

Here in E. Ohio/W. Pa the Hoosier's can't touch an American Racer. I have even seen some of the top runners switch to Hoosier when they were offered a tire deal, and then switch back to AR's.

American racers are made by Mcreary,and as racer 17j said, are very hard. For economic purposes these are the ones I use, and I have also seen several races won with these tires. I can get several weeks out of a tire before needing to replace it. They need to be good and warm to really hook up good, of course, there is always tire softening treatments

at our track we must run a tire stamped with a 11 inch width. the hoosiers measures out to be 14", while the am racers are 12".
that extra 2" means alot on the track. i also think the hoosiers are a better tire anyways.
