I run the Hoosier 26x8.5x15 stiffwall slick with no tubes and on a 10" rim. I got good advise from long time racers here on this site when I bought that setup. Evidently there was or still is a class that you must run that tire, so guys quickly figured out the best wheel width. Some even had custom 11" wide wheels made. Makes the contact patch very flat and even pressures. Depending on track conditions I will run them as high as 18psi, and as low as 14. It's a great tire especially for a stick car like mine.

Coincidence. A convenient and overused word for the mentally lazy.
