The A6 Radial from Hoosier is a Dry Racetrack & Autocross Only tire developed for drivers who compete in autocross, time trial and hillclimb events in dry conditions where responsiveness and high levels of grip are desirable. This particular Hoosier tire begins with a tread depth of 4.5/32" and does not require shaving for competition. However, it will benefit from a minimal scuff-in prior to its first run. It is important to note that Hoosier Racing Tires meet Department of Transportation requirements for marking and performance only and are not intended for highway use.

If you live in an area where you drive on snow-covered roads part of the year, then you may want to consider performance winter tires for your vehicle or replacing your current tires when less than 6/32" of tread depth remains. If snow is not an issue but rainy days are, then new automobile tires are recommended when you have approximately 4/32" of remaining tread depth.
To see how tread depth makes a difference in your vehicle's stopping distance, watch "Panic Stopping: How Much Tread Depth Do You Need?"

They say their reputation was built with horsepower, and AEM proves it by taking credit for some of the fastest vehicles found on racetracks across the country. Extensive research and development ventures ultimately lead to high-quality products that enhance performance levels on sport compact cars. But they don't stop there. AEM creates a variety of products well-suited to sedans, trucks and SUVs, too. For example, AEM air intakes.
An AEM air intake system comes tuned and tested to provide a complete air intake system that consistently outperforms the competition. All AEM intakes will soft mount, which means installation is flexible to prevent added stress on the component.
AEM Brute Force Cold Air Intake Systems were designed for trucks, SUVs and muscle cars to gain maximum airflow without sacrificing low-end torque.
Cold Air Intake Systems were designed for sport compact cars and feature an individually tuned inlet pipe and exterior filter for a cooler inlet charge.
Short Ram Intake Systems are economical alternatives to Cold Air Intake Systems, and tend to please drivers who are concerned about hydrolock.
With their knack for custom work and proven ability to develop some of the fastest cars on racetracks across the country, it's safe to say that AEM pioneered the cold air intake system in sport compact cars. (In fact, all AEM air intakes exhibit excellent performance.)
Specifically, the cold air AEM intakes are dyno-tuned to length and diameter. This forces maximum horsepower and torque more so than any other system like it. Take a look at what this previous customer had to say:
"Freaking wonderful noise! There was an installation issue as the factory airbox is a little different on '06 xb, but nothing that couldn't be fixed easily. I did need to do a little cleanup with the wiring, but that was expected. What I didn't expect was the glorious sound this would make at full throttle. I'd guess about a 4-5 HP gain. Noticeable mainly when the VVT comes on. Great product." — Tire Rack Consumer Review, Scion xB, FL

Purchasing an air intake system along with other upgrades such as a coil over kit can increase your vehicle’s performance. And to ensure optimum engine performance, consider the intake systems available from AIRAID. With the introduction of SynthaMax filters, AIRDAID’s complete line of intake systems provide long lasting quality with high-tech filtration technology.

After you’ve reviewed and compared our survey results, shop by vehicle to complete your online tire purchase.

The Bridgestone Potenza RE050A Pole Position provides exceptional dry and wet road traction with responsive handling. To ensure a quiet ride, a continuous circumferential rib adjacent to the inside shoulder blocks improves wear quality while reducing noise throughout the life of the tire. The tire consistently ranks high in the Max Performance Summer category in our Tire Survey Results with superior cornering stability, dry traction and steering response ratings.
Tire Rack has performed back-to-back product comparisons to help consumers with their purchasing decisions. Our Suspension Component Research page shows Eibach Springs, H&R Springs and KONI results from our Real World Road Ride route and Performance Test Track course.

H7 High Performance Bulbs are designed to replace 55w head light bulbs. Additional wattages are also available. Take a look at how these aftermarket bulbs were able to help two of our customers:
“These lights provide crisp and clear light. They have eliminated the uneasy feeling I used to get driving at night in the mountains. And for the money, it was hard to justify spending double on the competitor’s bulbs. I highly recommend these [bulbs] for the daily driver seeking better lighting. – Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2004 Mini Cooper
