No one locally is using Hoosier bias-ply. Looking for more
info on them. I'm getting a deal on a set of 225/50R15
which is too good to pass up. These are the Street TDs. Is
this what you're running? I want to use these for autox and
keep my BFG R1 for track. I heard they were designed
for vintage racing!? Do they feel squirmy on the street?
Do they warm up quickly enough for autox?
