Default Hoosier scrubs

Anyone know a great local place in California, Las vegas, or Arizona area to get Hoosier scrubs for our Corvettes?

I race about twice per month. Once in my Spec Corvette and once in my GT2 Corvette.

The GT2 car runs on either Hoosier A7s 315/30x18 front and 335/30x18 rears, or Pirelli DH slicks. Sometimes I sell some of the scrub tires. I might have a set or two of Hoosiers available. I don't have any Pirellis and I won't until after the Trans Am races at Sonoma and Portland in June and July.

Jim Tway, on this forum, should have some, too. John Schertzer who crews for two other Corvette racers might have some as well.

Olitho, I would be interested if you had any Pirelli scrubs after your June and July Races. I'm also in Orange County could swing by a grab them.

Sure. Hit me up in early July and early August when I have returned.

Also, I am curious why all the track day guys seem more interested in the Pirelli scrubs vs. the Hoosier A7s. The A7s come up faster and heat cycle better for a 25 minute track day session.

The Pirelli DHs work good for the 100 mile Trans Am stints, but my preference is actually the Hoosiers.

Ok thanks. I haven't run the DH yet but want to give them a try based on the comments I've seen on the forums. Which tires would you expect to get the most life between the two? Do the DH heat cycle out if you run them over a number of different track days?

The DH is a harder compound. Like most harder compounds they start out OK, once you get heat into them. I have found most harder compound tires seem to heat cycle out before they wear out. The A7s wear faster, but they last reasonably long in comparison. They also are fast before the end of lap one and they stay fast to the end of a 20 minute session. A7s are faster than R7s, even when they have fallen off their golden laps. I a race an A7 is faster than an R7. An A7 that has fallen off of its golden first three laps is still faster than a R7 on its golden laps.
