My Hoosier race tires are delivered by Greyhound bus to Calgary from a supplier in Edmonton. I have to order them months in advance so I was thrilled to finally pick them up today at the bus station…until I put them in the garage and noticed that they’d sent me the wrong front tires. They sent the fronts I raced on previously (44286) but I have since switched to the slightly narrower 45180 to avoid rubbing.

The Hoosier 45180 that I will be running is equivalent to a P225/60-15 - the rear tire I’m using is the 44306 which is equivalent to a 275/55-15.  I run the fronts on 7" Bassett lightweight steel rims with 3.625" backspacing and the rears on 8" rims with 4.75" backspacing.
