Those are pretty big make sure they don't rub hard on the strut.

Should be a fun event :)

Them thar must be fancy racing tires, judging by the complete lack of tread.


Have fun... ;-)

hahaha these aren't gangster thuggin tires. They're Hoosier Racing Slicks -- R3 if I remember right. Very soft compound to enable my autocross addiction.

The best part is that I payed $100 for the tires (still have 80% tread), $20 for mounting, and got the rims for free!

Nick, 225's won't rub, will they?! :o Also, thanks for all of the parts that I've ordered from you...

Very cool indeed. But why? Are you going to run it in the quarter, or is it just for S and G's?


Neato!

To the dude who never heard of hoosiers..... You need to get away from your saab a bit more, get down to the track!

Noooo Tboy. No quarter mile delusions here. hahaha

These are racing slicks (think go cart tires) not drag radials.

It's all about the autocross. My class winners usually beat me by about 3 seconds, but they all run slicks. Hopefully, these Hoosiers can enable quicker corners and give me a spot on the podium :cheesy:

Also, just took a hotlap of the neighborhood. Wow, the grip is insane even cold. The thing with slicks is that they fling rocks like nobody's business. Guess I'll be taping fenders.

Oh, and Nick -- I can turn from full lock to full lock with no scuffing. 225's for the win!

After the season I will likely upgrade my street set to some 16's or 17's. We can talk then about my stockers. :)

On the Hosier autocross slicks i had cleared neutral but under hard cornering they would rub the upright. Basically give it a look in there after the first run. :) Thats all.

G Stock. I'm up against 07 Civic SI's, an Acura RSX, a Jetta GLI, a minicooper, and the invincible class winner --a butt ugly Dodge Duster.
