The Hoosier R6 work great on the track. They are a very popular tire.
What car are you running these on? Do you need a DOT tire? Are you running a square setup? What is your rim size? Can you run a BFG R1 in a 245/40/18 on all 4 corners? I have some real nice ones for $100 each. I also have a 245/35/18 Hoosier R6 for $125 each. The 255/18 come through the shop but not very often. JP

I'm looking to put these on my M3 using the OEM 18s. I think I want to stay with 275/35R18s on the rear.
What do you think would be a good option for the front OEM 18x8.5 rim?

Ideally, I would suggest you get another set of rear rims and run a 275/35/18 on all 4 corners. JP

What kind of car are you running? I know a lot of guys running a 275/35/18 on all corners or the E46 M3. Maybe someone can chime in on rim/offset size required to make that happen. I'll keep you posted on the new arrivals. JP

Bump...I'll probably buy a pair of 275/35R18 R6s this spring...hopefully I'll be ready for RComps by then!

255/35R18 fr 275/35R18 rr in the R6. This setup is about .7" smaller in outer diameter than OEM...comparing Tire Rack Specs of course. So its not too far off. Eventually I do want to run square OEM 18s.

just bought a porsche 944 turbo track car. It has 17" 911 wheels and currently has hoosier 275r? 17's square. (not exactly sure whats on this) I'm going to need a square setup. Any idea what 17" wheels people put on these, and what tires might fit?

Was wrong on my tire size. What's on there now are 245/265/18 on 4 corners. Not sure what sidewall that equates to. Assuming pretty thin? There about the tallest tire I could imagine stuffing in there. Need 4 tires tho
