I only run that much in the rf with an A i usually dont run more that 12 on rr. Personally i hate the A's and run D's almost exclusively. Once the A's go through a heat cycle they glaze over and never seem to come back. If i am in a situation where i am concerned about tire wear i will usually go with an H over the A. With ump allowing siping of the A's this year they may be better though.

we are running the Hoosier E-Mod tires....After 4 or 5 laps these things are really hooking up. When they say set up loose they mean to set up "really loose"
