Flat Rock looking to switch to 880 tire. Anyone out there using them and what kind of results. Ou cars wiegh 3000lbs and we were running the Hoosier Sportsman which were only good for one nite. Was told 880 is same compound just different tread which means Flat Rock will still be in the racing tire makes us money bussiness. How much did they cost at your track? Thanks for any input.

They last longer than one night on a properly set-up chassis. We used to run a rotation after opening night (you bought 4 new stickers opening night) of 1-1-2... It's been a few years since I ran them, but we ran them in the prostock/sportsman class at Berlin for several years. I'm not sure on what the price tag was this year, but in years past they were just over $100 a piece.

according to hoosier's website the sportsman and the 880's have the same tread pattern. as well as the same hardness of tire.

I have a sneaking suspicion that the new tires won't last any longer.....

How could they? That would be against ARCA policy.
