Thanks, im thinking we have the wrong tire wheel combination (soft sidewall/too narrow of wheel) cars a handfull to drive on the top end under 9 psi.

We run a 32x15x15 with 5.5 pds of air. Stiff wall on our dragster. It is really a tire they say is for door cars but it works so well on our dragster.
I deserve respect for the things that i DO NOT do.

Ya,talked to hoosier, they recommen a stiff sidewall for our application. Wheel being no more than 1'' narrower than tire.
