Hey Jeff:

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?
