1. How do I purchase a Hoosier Race Tire?
Hoosier Race Tires are purchased through our extensive distribution network of distributors and dealers. Select "distribution" under any race tire category under the Race Tire section. You will see a map of the United States, find the nearest distributor to you and click on the star. The address and phone numbers of the distributor will be displayed. The distributor will either be able to sell direct to you or place you in contact with a dealer who is closer to you who will.   (Top)

2. How do I get Hoosier decals for my racecar?
If you send us an e-mail at info@hoosiertire.com requesting the decals, we would be happy to send them to any of our customers free of charge to anywhere in the United States or Canada. Remember to include your mailing address where you want the decals sent. To help defer the cost and avoid waste please tell us in the e-mail whether you want BLACK, WHITE or PURPLE decals. You may also want to include the type of racing you are involved in which will help us determine the proper decals to send you. We appreciate your Hoosier support by displaying our name proudly on your race car. (Top)

3. How do I store my Hoosier race tires at the end of the racing season? 
The useful life of a tire, whether mounted or dismounted, is directly affected by storage conditions. Tires should always be stored indoors in a dark, cool, dry room.

 - Remove the tires from the vehicle. 
 - Store tires on their side in a cool/dark/dry environment.
 - Place tires in a black plastic bag when stored during the "off-season".
 - Make sure the temperature range in the storage location is between 40-90 degrees Fahrenheit.

 - Don't store tires in direct sunlight or near electric motors. (Electric motors emit small amounts of ozone.) Tires need to be protected from light, especially sunlight. Light causes ultraviolet damage by breaking down the rubber compounds. 

 - Don't apply any chemical treatments to Hoosier tires. (It's not necessary and may actually damage the integrity of the tire by breaking down the rubber properties of the tire.) Tires must not be allowed to come in contact with oils, greases, solvents, or other petroleum products that cause rubber to soften or deteriorate.

 - Don't store tires in sub-freezing temperatures for any length of time. (The rubber can freeze and may crack as a result.) (Top)

4. I would like to sell Hoosier tires in the US or Canada, how do I become a Hoosier Tire Dealer? 
Hoosier has an established network of independent Hoosier Distributors. They, in turn, establish their own network of Hoosier Dealers. You will need to contact the Hoosier Distributor in your area who handles the particular tire line you are interested in carrying. You will ask the Distributor whether they have a need for a dealer in your particular location.

5.   How are the Hoosier Kart & Quarter Midget tires sized?
The kart and quarter midget tire nomenclature is defined as follows: 
Circumference/Tread Width - Bead Diameter Size. Take for example a 35/7.1-6 size tire. The "35" is the circumference of the tire, the "7.1" is the tread width, and the "6" is the bead diameter size. All of these measurements are in inches and are measured on the recommended wheel width. To view each tire size and their specifications, click on the section marked "Specs" located under the Kart & Quarter Midget section of the Hoosier Tire website.
