Members Michael G. Posted November 3, 2015 Members Share Posted November 3, 2015 (edited) Proposed change Treaded 'rain' tires should be excluded from the non-DOT power to weight adjustment for cars that normally run DOT 'dry' tires. The calculation factor used for the sticker on the car's windshield would be used to determine whether the car 'normally' runs DOT or non-DOT tires. Reason In most areas, rain races are rare. Rain tires almost always age out of usability long before tread wear or heat cycles end their life. In the interest of safety and fairness, any rain tire should be allowed under the same power to weight rules the car would run under dry conditions. This would allow drivers more freedom to pick up used rain tires from professional teams, fellow competitors, and year-old clearance sales.
