Everyone using top tier DOTs or slicks?

Recommended Posts

When looking at results and lap times, is it safe to assume that pretty much everybody is using Kumho's, 214's or Hoosiers (or slicks), or are a lot of folks running 2d (PSC) or 3d tier r-comps (RA1)?

 

Thanks,

The majority of cars at Nationals are running Hoosier DOT's. THere is a sprinkling of other tires but based on the mountain of Hoo-hoo's stacked up in Phil's trailer I think that's the tire of choice.

My vote goes to Kumhos. I've tried them all and I find the Kumhos more consistent and predictable overall in all temps and track conditions (rain notwithstanding). Speedwise, they're quicker than the Hoos - at least on my car & setup; ex-WC E36 with 2-way JRZs. And you just can't beat the contingency. BTW, the 245/45 size hasn't been an issue for me, although a lot of guys shy away from them because they don't have a matching size to the Hoos at least in the 17s.

Thanks guys. Seems to confirm what I thought--get some kooks for Nat's and get some contingency money for next year's campaign in GTS!
