Hoosier Racing TiresTire Rack is a Hoosier Tire Dealer offering the Hoosier R6 in over 50 sizes from 13-inch up to 19-inch.  The Hoosier R6 comes with 4.5/32 tread depth, so no tire shaving is needed. A quick heat cycle by Tire Rack would benefit the R6. Heat cycling can be added at time of check out at $15 each.

Take a look at some of the recent user reviews on the R6.

"I've used these on my Porsche 968 race car in PRC racing and open track days for years, and have always loved them. They hook-up very well, the steering response is nice, and the tire is very predictable. The optimum tire pressures are easy to figure out, and I've found they work well after a lap or two warm up all the way to the end. Overall, a real nice reliable track tire with good stick." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, Porsche 968, CA

A good reminder on mounting these tires. They need at least 36-48 hours to cure once mounted on your track wheels. If you order just tires make sure you allow for enough time to let the tire cure on the wheel after installation.

The tire with the quickest lap times from the high performance tire test was 29.9 seconds with a .93 G average skid pad g-force.

US Made DOT Competition Tires from Hoosier Tire

Hoosier Racing TireTire Rack is a Hoosier Tire Dealer offering the popular Hoosier A6 and Hoosier R6. We can even get the Hoosier Wet tires for the diehard enthusiast that will race rain or shine. 

Think back to the stories told from the early days of racing when you drove the family coupe or sedan to the track, changed the oil, checked the tire pressure and pulled the spare tire out and you were ready to race. Things are so different now in the premier racing series. However many of us still live out that dream through autocross competition and track events on the weekend. Even at Tire Rack when I work my summer Saturdays I pull into work to see our parking lot and test track become one of the venues for club track events -- typically in a much safer environment than days gone by 50 years ago.
