HOOSIER ANNOUNCES
NEW TIRE FOR SPEC MIATA

10-08-03

Hoosier's new tire for Spec MiataLAKEVILLE, IN -- Hoosier Racing Tire is proud to announce the release of the P205/50ZR15  D.O.T. Competition radial tire for the Spec Miata class. The new Spec Miata tire is a result of extensive testing and development from the Grand Am Street Stock Endurance Series and R3S04 developments. The new Spec Miata tire will feature a sidewall plate that reads “SM” on both sidewalls for easy identification. The new tires will carry a catalog # of 46500SM and will have a suggested retail price of $142.00 (US). These tires will be available only from Hoosier distributors and dealers that provide SCCA trackside service. The current tire approval process for the Spec Miata class is left to the individual SCCA areas and regions. Currently, all approved tires include predominantly the Toyo Proxes RA1, Kumho V700 Victoracer, and Hankook Ventus. The main criteria for regions approving these tires has been durability and price.

A review of current tire pricing is as follows: 

  TOYO Proxes RA1                $150.00 = $600.00/SET   
($165.00 less $15.00 rebate coupon)

KUMHO V700 Victoracer     $130.00 = $520.00/SET 

HANKOOK Ventus               $137.00 = $548.00/SET 

HOOSIER SM                       $142.00 = $568.00/SET 

Other Hoosier benefits:

* The new HOOSIER SM tire will produce extended wear over the previous R3S03 model tire while delivering more grip, speed, and confidence resulting in quicker, safer laps. 

* Unlike other brands, all Hoosier tires are produced in the U.S.A. so availability issues should not be of concern. 

* Hoosier has a much more comprehensive trackside support network in place than any of the other tire suppliers. 

The SM tire will be debuted at the A.R.R.C. at Road Atlanta, November 7-9, 2003.
