COMPOUND APPLICATIONS:

  

The Hoosier WET compound is designed with a substantial amount of wet traction for effortless maneuverability in heavy rain conditions. The compound is also equipped with higher levels of durability for damp or drying track conditions.  

The R60A is a medium compound that balances traction, durability and performance with versatility. The R60A is designed for medium grip, mildly abrasive track conditions. 

The R60 is a hard compound that is designed to maximize durability on very abrasive tracks without sacrificing mechanical grip.

  

SET-UP INFORMATION:

  

WET

The recommended starting pressure for the WET is 14-16 psi (cold).

R60A & R60

The recommended starting pressure for the R60A & R60 is 12-13 psi (cold) for sprint applications and 13-14 psi (cold) for road race applications. The R60A & R60 compound is designed for sprint and road race applications.

  

DIRECTION OF ROTATION/ MOUNTING INSTRUCTIONS:

  

Every Hoosier race tire has a four character serial code embossed into ONE sidewall of the tire (example: J7B9). The left side tires should be mounted with the serial side code facing toward the outside of the kart. The right side tires should be mounted with the serial code facing toward the centerline of the kart. Once the tire is on the rim, we recommend placing the tire inside a mounting ring and adjusting the ring to fit snug around the tire. We highly advise using the mounting ring as we believe not using it can over stretch the carcass leading to inconsistent sizing. Once the tire has seated onto the rim, it is important the tire be initially stretched to about 10 psi over cold starting pressure to get the tire to its proper "profile". The tire should be set at this pressure for a few minutes and then dropped to the desired race pressure. Just be consistent in this procedure to get repeatable results.

Those tires with directional arrows should be mounted so that the tire travels in the direction of the arrow.
