When will these be for sale? I don’t see them on tire rack yet. 

Might want to contact Hoosier or a Hoosier dealer. If Jeff is doing the Webinars...outside chance they are available through their network before TR.

It would be interesting if this new tire had better grip better than the RE-71 and lasted longer than the RS-4 to explain its current price.  Might would be worth it if that's the case, but with limited data, our budget limited team will stick with tires that have good data. My team just got a set of 255/40/R17 RS-4's in prep for the VIR24. To buy the Continentals, it would have cost another $307 (over the RS-4's) for the set! If any teams plan on running the tire soon, would be good to hear a review about the tire's performance, longevity, and feel.

I was told/heard "1 second better than RS4's at VIR, and can last 8 hours". Those two items coupled with the price....meh.

 

Definitely gonna let others have a crack at this tire first. Let them spend the money to find out how they are.
