    I have 2 sets of tires for my supervee. One set is slicks and the other set is grooved hoosier vintage tires. The grooved tires are an inch wider than the slicks. Which would be better for autocrossing?

    You bring up an interesting question... you have to remember that in a 60 second run you'll never get any real tire temperature built - so your racing tires are never going to be operating as they should. I had a conversation with a fellow FF driver about this and we think that some of the new soft "street" tires used may be better than real racing tires. Sadly, most are not available in sizes that fit our cars.

    If both sets are new, the slicks will be faster. If they are both one season old or older, throw them out and order some Hoosiers (R25 compound). Biggest gain in any mod class is fresh rubber. Soft (R compound) street tires just won't cut it.
