Hoosier Racing Tire's extensive R6 testing has shown that the R6 produces crisper steering response and improved transitional track performance. The new Hoosier R6 track tire internal construction provides increased overall grip and greater stability at the tire's higher limits of adhesion, allowing the driver to apply more power with confidence. The new R6 track tire has also shown better overall wear due to the improved tread profile of the R6. The R6 features two symmetric "Formula One" style circumferential tread grooves. Additionally, the R6 symmetric tread design allows the R6 to be mounted on either side of the car (and later be remounted inside out to further extend the life of the R6). Beginning with a tread depth of 4.5/32", the R6 will not require shaving for competition.
Hoosier H2O Hoosier’s Radial Wet H20 is Hoosier's racing track tire developed for drivers who participate in autocross and road racing events in moderate to heavy rain. The H20 race tires feature an aromatic oil-free wet weather tread compound that offers traction for fast and consistent lap times in wet track conditions, along with improved tread wear and durability in damp to drying track conditions. This Hoosier racing compound is molded into a directional tread design featuring a combination of circumferential and "Y-shaped" lateral tread grooves. Through the initial portion of their life (between their beginning tread depth of 8/32-inch and approximately 4/32-inch of remaining tread depth), the walls of the tread grooves taper as the tires wear. Through the remainder of their H2O tread depth (between 4/32-inch tread depth and worn out), the walls are molded vertically. This allows the Hoosier race tires to serve as full wet tires when used at their original 8/32-inch tread depth, or intermediate wet race tires when shaved or worn to approximately 4/32-inch of remaining tread depth due to the reduced tread squirm and increased footprint contact area of the Hoosier H2O race tire.
Hoosier’s Radial Wet H20 race tires have a symmetric internal construction and directional tread design that allow them to be mounted for use on either side of the race car. The Hoosier H2O racing tire’s internal structure features a three-ply nylon cord radial casing reinforced by two fiberglass belts and a spirally wound circumferential nylon cap ply under the racing tread.
Hoosier Race Slicks come in six race tire compounds, R25B(softest) and R100 (hardest). The Hoosier race slicks provide excellent grip superior to other racing slicks, reach optimal operating temperature quickly and provide even and consistent traction throughout their race life cycle. The Hoosier racing slicks are the best race tires available.
WARNING: D.O.T. labeled Hoosier Racing Tires meet Department of Transportation requirements for marking and performance only and are NOT INTENDED FOR HIGHWAY USE. It is unsafe to operate any Hoosier Racing Tire, including D.O.T. tires, on public roads. The prohibited use of Hoosier Racing Tires on public roadways may result in loss of traction, unexpected loss of vehicle control, or sudden loss of racing tire pressure, resulting in a vehicle crash and possible injury or death. And like all Hoosier race tires and track tires, R6 racing tires, A6 racing tires, H20 racing tires, road racing slicks, and vintage/historic racing tires are not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow, or on ice. It is also essential that these racing tires be stored indoors at temperatures above 32 degrees fahrenheit.
