Hey guys, just a quick question. I've seen a couple of Cup cars with wider slicks, and wondered a few things about that. First, what sizes do you think these tires are? They appear to be Hoosiers, 205 and 245 R6's maybe? But much wider than the stock A005's for sure. And second, with the tires being wider like that, wouldn't there be a lot more movement/roll? I was always under the impression that for cornering you wanted the tire to either be square, or even a little stretched on the wheel. Is this not correct?

Sorry guys, I think I found the answer to my first question. I believe these are 205/245 Hoosier A6, as the 245 A7 rubs bad in the rear. Still wondering about the bulge in the rear though, if it's something that you can feel while cornering, or not so much.
