How can spec e-30 make hooshier tires the spec tire? The cost for Hooshier and toyo tires are not that different. Most of drivers that I talk with end up shaving their tires down to get the most grip any way. I heard that SCCA spec miata has gone to hooshier tires. I vote yes to hooshier tires.

It can happen as soon as the Toyo contract with NASA runs out most likely.

I am not in se30 anymore, the a new tire would be great. Toyo is a great tire, but it is not the only player anymore, and there are tires that are both faster and last longer. Maybe the community chips in and does some real tire tests to evaluate the best tire for 2013?

oh, go wider too, while your at it. ;)
