Default Official Auto-X Tire - Weight Listings

I have read a lot about the Hoosier AS04 and the AVONS. Can some-one point me toward a chart or listing of how much they weigh. Particularily in size I can use on my 04 STi or for anyone to use on their Subaru

It would be a good thing to have a data-base of tires. If not, let's use this thread for people to list their auto cross tires they've weighed

Thanks everyone,
Justin

Do I smell? If this is too noobish, let me know and I will let the thread die, otherwise why no info?

Thanks,

You posted less than 12 hours ago... (Close to midnight eastern... I was already in bed along with almost 1/2 of the country) and people from the west coast are just waking up right now....

It'll need time.

How about calling Hoosier and Kumho and asking them for the information?

^ Good idea, I might do that for the good of the community. Sorry, I didn't know if I was being ignored

Thanks,

Yes, and any good auto-x tire you use. I have a good link at home I will post later for some of the major manufacturers. I can't remember it right now.

Azenis - heavy, but still the best street tire

kumho victoracers - heavy, but still a good race tire

hoosiers - light, and the best race tire =)

Assuming 6 runs a day, how many auto-x days would you get out of a set of slicks like the Hoosiers?

To the original question...

Falkan Azenis 225-45-17 weighed in at 22.4 pounds (worn to the wear bars)

Kumho MX's 225-40-18 weighed in at 24 pounds (new)

Not exactly apples to apples and 18" isn't a preferred tire size for auto-x

On lighter cars like MR2s and whatnot they can get a ton of runs out of them. On heavier higher horsepower cars they don't last as long. I'm expecting to get maybe 6-7 events out of my A3S03s (older model) tires. The A3S03s are really light compared to other tires.

Luke at Tirerack can probably provide you with the weights of the Hoosiers and Avons since they sell both tires. He's been able to provide me with tire weights in the past.

they last ok on heavier cars if they are huge.

I just sold my A3S03s after 41 runs (plus 6 ProSolo practice starts).

That included six dry autocross days and one wet autocross day, plus two dry spins and one wet spin. (Funny how I can remember every detail about every one of the three spins I took on the tires. ) The tires never flat-spotted and they still had some really nice grip left, but I am debuting some A3S04s on wider wheels at the DC Tour, so I sold off the entire tire/wheel package.

The tires were sized 245/40R17 on an Evo with a fair bit of camber dialed in. From what I understand, running a decent amount of camber goes a long way to keeping your Hoosiers happy. If you are camber challenged (like you might be in Stock class), you can expect a shorter tire life.
