4x 245/45/17 Hoosier roadracing/autox tires slightly used!
Hoosier Sports Car D.O.T. Radial Wet tires were developed for drivers who participate in autocross and road racing events in moderate to heavy rain. While all Hoosier Sports Car D.O.T. Radial Wet tires have passed DOT requirements, they feature a special tread compound to facilitate racing in wet conditions. Due to this special compound, these tires are not suitable for highway use as the expected miles of wear is greatly reduced.
On the outside, the Sports Car D.O.T. Radial Wet tire features a tread compound proven during years of Motorola/Grand-Am Cup endurance racing. This wet weather compound is molded into a directional tread design and features unique "Y-shaped" major circumferential and lateral tread grooves. Through the initial portion of their life (between their beginning tread depth of 8/32-inch and approximately 4/32-inch of remaining tread depth), the walls of the tread grooves taper as the tires wear. Through the remainder of their tread depth (between 4/32-inch tread depth and worn out), the walls are molded vertically. This allows the tires to serve as full wet tires when used at their original 8/32-inch tread depth, or intermediate wet tires when shaved or worn to approximately 4/32-inch of remaining tread depth due to the reduced tread squirm and increased footprint contact area.
The Sports Car D.O.T. Radial Wet tires have a symmetric internal construction and directional tread design that allow them to be mounted for use on either side of the car. They feature a three-ply nylon cord radial carcass reinforced by two fiberglass belts and a spirally wound circumferential nylon cap ply under the tread.

bump for a great price!
Also have a question about the size, I have some 245/45/17 nt555r's from another vehicle and have read nothing but conflicting stories about this size being used on our cars. what setup are you running and do you have any issues?
Thanks, GL with the sale.
