Re: ideal track tire pressure...17x9

If youre running a radial tire, never run your tires below the recommended inflation, or above. Radials are designed to work with a certain amount of air pressure.

at the drag races, make the fronts as high as the max on the tires say, and the rear at the recommended pressure.

If you run slicks, its a whole different ballgame

a gallon of vht track bite , and normal tire pressures will work wonder on radials ... just make sure you keep it off your paint!
