Well guys, you've just given a guy in the 9th step and keg !!

Now that you're gonna have Hoosiers, you're farther gone than you realize,..but have fun and figure out tire temp, maybe find someone using them,it'll save you some money . Also go to hoosiers website and they should still have the guide telling you this weight car, this tire size, needs this much camber when tire temp is cold, and when tire temp is hot,...thats very helpful when you first get married to Hoosiers,..maybe not so much with the Auto-x tires. I use the roadrace tires, and with a 285-18 front and 305-18 rear, it took me 2 sets to figure out why we kept seeing cords, after a day. I know alot of people who still go through that with a 2300 lbs car ( 944 turbo racecar) and big tires,..prob is you cant get temp all the way across the tire. So we upped the pressure to 47hot front and 46 hot rear, and ran 3.5 negative front and .5 negative rear, and ...BOOM......lap time dropped 1.5 seconds on a 2.1 mile track. So if you cant find it, I'll search through all my stuff,...

Luke might be able to supply the chart from Hoosier.
