I am trying to decide what is a better tire/wheel combo to run.  I have the following tire choice on the RR of my 305 sprint car:

  • 18" Hoosier - Hard compound
  • 16" Hoosier - Medium compound

I have been running the 18" hard tire with limited success, but it seems I am the only one.  Nearly everyone else is running the 16" medium tire.  If I switch to the 16" tire, I have to get new RR wheels, as all my RR wheels are 18" wide.  So thats something to consider....

Thoughts????

Most guys I know run a 17 inch wide rim with a 16 inch tire.  Rims cost alot of money, can you just bolt a new rim half on to make 17 inch?

You won't have to buy new wheels, but you will lose some rollout running a 16" tire on an 18" wheel.
