Introducing the New Hoosier A7

Wednesday, May 21, 2014 by Zig Ziegler

Hoosier has long been the gold standard when looking for the best racetrack and autocross tires. This season they have launched the new DOT A7 Radial. The tire replaces the widely popular Hoosier A6 and aims to set the bar even higher.

DOT A7 Radials are Racetrack & Autocross Only tires developed for drivers who compete in autocross, time trial and hillclimb events in dry conditions where responsiveness and high levels of grip at lower operating temperatures are desirable. A7 tires are also used for road racing on lightweight cars or when competing in cool ambient temperatures where Hoosier's R6 Radials can't be brought up to favorable operating temperatures.

These tires incorporate a new tread compound designed to extend wear and useable heat cycles, as well as experience less “fall-off” during a long run and less degradation over the life of the tire (compared to A6 tires). The tread compound is molded into a slick tread design interrupted only by five-dash circumferentially oriented grooves alternating outboard and inboard.

Beginning with a tread depth of 4/32", they will not require shaving for competition, however they'll benefit from a minimal scuff-in prior to their first run. We can provide a heat cycling service for an additional $15 per tire, so when you receive your new A7 tires they will be track ready.

The new A7 tires are in stock and ready for race season. Shop by size and see if there is an A7 tire offered for your track car today!
