LAKEVILLE, IN (January
24, 2002) -- Hoosier Racing Tire Corp. is proud
to announce the introduction of a new line of midget dirt front
tires. We have determined through extensive testing the cross
angle block (CAB) tread pattern was superior to the old super chain
link (SCL) pattern. Our testing indicated the new tread design can
dramatically improve tread life of your midget front tire,
particularly when racing on dry track conditions.
The new line
will only be available in a 68.0/7.0-13 CAB (catalog #35112). This
will be replacing the 68.0/7.0-13 SCL (catalog #35110). The
68.0/6.0-13 SCL midget front (catalog #35100) will be phased out once
current inventory has been depleted.
The new midget front tires are
currently available in Hoosier's D12 and D15 compounds. The harder D25
compound is being replaced with the D20 and is projected to be
available April 1, 2002. Feel free to contact your local Hoosier Tire
distributor for more information.
