Somebody grab these from that guy, please! These are Hoosier R6 tires rebranded for the Grand Am series. I already have a shitload of tires stacked up and don't need anymore temptations to buy more. They are a smoking deal for an HPDE/practice tire.

A couple of notes to a potential buyer:

These aren't really rebranded R6s. They are rebranded Hoosiers but the compound is more like an R3. They're definitely not as fast as an R6, but they should have a little bit longer "life".

Also, Hoosier hasn't made this size for Grand Am since 2012 I believe. At best they are 3 years old, possibly older. So even the "new" ones are old in terms of r-compound tire age. These tires will have gotten harder over the years. I would ask the seller to check the manufacture date and to take that into account when considering them.

I'm not saying these tires aren't good or that they aren't a good buy. But they are not R6s and they are "old" tires.

Definitely really good HPDE/practice tires and not front runner TT tires. I had some and they had good grip and wore like iron. Much more fun than a street tire and they last a long time. I would be picking them up if I didn't have a stack of 18 tires already, lol.
