With all this talk about the new mt 275 vs old and vs hoosier I was looking at the specs and the mt is 8# heavier!
On a lower powered car (ie 9-10 sec car) is this going to make a difference?
Also the mt sportsman fronts vs some of the other fronts there is also a 7+ lb difference.

Re: tire weight
When it comes to small tire racing, traction is the key. Tubes add weight, but they can also help traction. If the car has more traction (especially in small tire racing) it will tend to run quicker. That's why a lot of 10.5 guys run tubes. This varies on the application and power adder, but for the most part it hold true.
Yes - weight is always something to consider, but may not always be the difference.
