ok i will simplify this for all the people scratching thier heads and wondering what the hell is going on here. if you run usac races you will have to run a spec hoosier tire. the tire performs well and last over several races. if you run qma and want to be competitive you will run a vega tire that also performs well but does not last. its no more difficult than that we have ran both and been competitive on both. if anyone tries to tell you different they are full of ----.

Thanks Smoke -- thats what I was trying to say, although I have no experience on the Hoosiers, my assumption is that you should be able to be competitve on both.  Set-up will be different, air pressure etc... and the feel to  the driver may change, but a good driver with the right setup should be fine.

My challenge is we have always run the 11.5 vega on the right rear.  The Hoosier will mean I will need to change raise the right side ride height and set the car up differently.   ??

could be, we never made tire changes that often. we adjust car to weather,track,etc. more than anything. good luck.

I would have to check notes later, but off the top of my head I want to say we run the Hoosier on a half inch wider wheel than the Vega and get the same tire size.  Again this is from memory, which seems to be getting worse every day, but I am pretty sure that is what we did to get the tire size the same.
