I've been running an IMCA track and running i'm running another track for the first time Saturday night? Tire rule for track is Hoosier a40 or IMCA g60 tires. I know i want to run the Hoosiers but i was thinking about just running them on the back with the g60 on the front. Would that hurt anything or do i need to run the Hoosiers all the way around? How is it going to affect the handling? Thanks

The tires are differant in size. I would say that mixing them will throw off your ride heights, and affect the cars geometry. KEEP IT SIMPLE! I would recommend putting the Hoosiers all the way around if po$$ible.

stick with the tires you know.use the g-60's

If you run against guys running hoosiers then run the hoosiers. You will be at a big disadvantage if you don't. I would not mix the tires either. the g-60's don't flex as much so you probably would have a push the whole race. gl ltr spde

I agree with zero, dry slick will even things up, but if it stays tacky you'll be out to lunch.

The Hoosier is a racing tire, and the puck is not. Regardless of track condition the Hoosier will have more grip. If you are really used to the pucks, maybe you should run them because you might be off on setup a bit with the Hoosier (the puck setup is usually too tight for the Hoosier). If this is a one time deal or you are just trying it, maybe try the pucks and see how it goes. That way you aren't out a bunch of $$. Good luck!
