It's simply there if you need it. Having more options is always nice.

Is a 30" tire going to fit on any of these cars? I know there is no way that is fitting a vette.

Mine actually measured 29" and they hook great, and they have about 5"s of side wall, I had them last summer on 600 hp, this spring i'll have them on 800hp - 1200hp

Might be good for someone who runs out of gear at the track and doesn't want to change the gear ratio again. Even then that's alot of rolling weight/resistance.

big horsepower= big tire, or you can spend all you money on a 15" conversion and then fill the wheel-well with great big 15" tires, got a problem hooking up? these will do the trick and yes I row the gears and yes I drag race, sorry but these tires work. what's with all the negativity? ... linehand7 2013 and 2014 Oahe speedway Street/Trophy champion... you want to win races? hook and go... nuff said...

if you go to a 325/40/18 you are missing the point you need more sidewall to get the bite and like I said before mine weren't 30" tall.

So if you miss the point at 325/45R18 what makes you hit the point?

this is why I've been a member since feb 2009 andonly have 135 posts, everybody bashing each other, all i'm saying is hoosier sent me a set of these tires for research and development and if you want an 18" tire ( 18" corvette rims are cheap) and you plan on using it at the track, these are awesome! two time track champion... linehand7
