Me,.... I'm switching over to Hoosier Bias plys guys.

Our local CVAR group requires them and I want to have more fun SLIDING" around the track like my namesake Parnelli. (not to mention I'm getting so old I need more time to save it!)

read this description between Radials and Bias plys.

Be sure to look at the slip angle chart..

Anyone have experience on them?

This is a bit of a devils nest, but I'll bite. I have time on both. I would recommend the bias ply's for first timer's and
camber "restricted cars" - those unable to get more than 2 degress negative camber. This will be the quicker
tire for most drivers.

If your suspension has been modified (wedges, modified arms UCA, TCP or GW UCA's) and you can dial in
2.5 or more in negative camber, the Hoosier R4's will be a better match and quicker.

It's a shame BFG dropped the R-1 line, you got a good sticky radial whose shoulder design helped turn in on
camber restricted cars.

That describes my situation with the Shelby... I have the stock control arm setup (not even a 'drop' in mine as it's a late 66) and can only get so much camber... you're saying bias ply would be better?
