The Hoosier A7 is a motorsports-oriented tire reserved for intense competitors on racetracks and autocross since 2014. It's a slick tire with a set of tiny dotted grooves near the center of the contact patch. The quirky design provides a better grip over dry surfaces, allowing the tires to perform smoothly without chunking or blistering on short distances. The internal construction of the A7 features a symmetric structure, using two reinforced nylon caps and lightweight steel belts. Its perfect symmetry means the tire can go on either side of the car.
The Hoosier A7 is the go-to option for experts and enthusiasts of the autocross, time trial, and hill climb world. Autocross teams use the Hoosier A7 because it gives their vehicles an excellent response to steering, remarkable acceleration, and powerful braking. Its performance is stunning, but its treadwear 40 means they wear out quickly. This model is exclusive for use in cooler temperatures and should not be on highways because of the critical loss of grip due to high-temperature exposure.
