Sort of. I ran 29 X 10 M/T, switched to 29 X 10 hoosier and was a big difference. Much more consistant.

So was the 60 better or just more consistant and what compound are you running the hoosier offers 2.

Better 60' & more consistant. A lot less aborted runs, especially on crappy track.
D05, don't know if they had more compounds, this is what my dealer gave me.

I ran 29.5x10.5 MTs for a couple years and just switched to Hoosiers. I find the Hoosiers are working better and as mentioned, more consistant.

I've heard that Hoosiers hook great for 5 passes then they quickly go away.Any truth to this,I need a non W 10.5 tire for some smaller tire 1/8th mile action.

Slick wise everytime we ever tried M/T or Hoosier we always ended up going back to Goodyears. So now we don't even bother just stick with Goodyears now.

I put ~25 pass' @ 8.50. After ~30 pass' they go away fast. At 25 pass' I can sell them to slow guys & they get a lot of life out of them.

My 29.5x10.5 Hoosiers are still hooking great after 30 passes. They will be replaced after one more event (~8 passes).
