Hi

What is the difference between the Hoosier d25 and ks1 right rear tyre?

Have heard things about the ks1 been made of a different rubber but no one can really back up what they say

Thanks

That is my understanding as well. I am going to ask a Hoosier rep to get on here and verify that.

I emailed Hoosier and this is the response.

"The D25 is a similar blend of rubber to the KS1 but the D25 is
around 5 points softer in the durometer reading.

The construction is the same on the W tire for both. The D25 also comes in narrow which
Has a bit stiffer construction in the sidewall."

So when people say to run a ks1 over a d25 as it's different rubber and is a advantage is just not true. A

Thank you for clearing this up

Thats correct. The ASCS2 tire is different rubber and it can be an advantage at times. If you can get the ASCS2 to fire, it great great bite.
