These tires are delicate and are not intended to be driven on the street or exposed to cold temperatures. Their life can be extended by using our in-house heat cycling service.

Wet Racetrack & Autocross Only
These tires feature a more aggressive directional tread design and deep tread depths to provide excellent wet traction on the track. Tires in this performance category are delicate and not intended to be street driven or exposed to cold temperatures. If this sounds like something you're looking for out of a tire, Hoosier offers a great option.
Drag Racing Radials
Specifically designed for straight line racing, this class gives the driver drag strip performance from tires that are streetable. Due to their soft sidewalls, meant to help the tire deflect under straight line acceleration, they can feel softer than normal around corners in street conditions. These tires are delicate and not intended to be driven in wet conditions or exposed to cold temperatures. Top performers in the category include:
- BFGoodrich g-Force T/A Drag Radial
- BFGoodrich g-Force T/A Drag Radial 2
