We do a lot of trail riding and also ride in the sand pits. We don't hit that much mud. A long time ago I had a totally tricked out (Jimmy White Replica) 86 Tecate with some Hoosiers on it front and rear. One time I dragged a FMF Piped Banshee and he just barely beat me while he was running Turf Tamers. That drag was in the sand too! lol. I then offered him to take it to the pavement and he wanted no part of it. The next week I came back with a fresh set of Turf Tamers and smoked him badly! lol.

I wish they still made them Hoosiers. So whats the top tire for ovals/clay/hardpack that still works in the other stuff (besides mud) these days?

Well, dunno if this will help you or not....

I ride hard pack, little mud, creeks, some sand (as in creek sand, not dunes), rocky, and soft terrain. And the Razr's I have do good in general in all these areas. They have excellent hook-up in loose and hard pack plus many GNCC riders prefer Razr's over everything else. Thats gotta tell you somin. I would recommend Razr's and if you are gonna do a lot of trail ridin I would purchase the Razr 2's that should be out in a few weeks. They were tested by Bill Ballance in last years 2001 GNCC season. Very good tire.
Just my opinion. :D

same rims. 4 on 110 bolt pattern, already bought some so this is for sure. The hoosiers you spoke of are only good on basically a groomed surface/race track. Get 18-11x8's trufs,razors whatever for mx fun. Anything but the track stay with stock size or larger or you will end up getting stuck, beat to death, busted equipment. If you really want Hoosier type tires give Baldwin Motorsports a try, They are flat track specialist sorta being in ashtabula (home of national tt race) McCreary tire became more popular than hoosier I think for that kind of stuff.
