DTW Series - Rain Tread

This is American Racers most universal tire. Very little preparation is needed, bolt on and race. The DTW makes excellent side bite and also makes an exceptional steering tire. Rain tread tires are very durable, run cooler than the other series, and have won races on all types of track services. The DTW Series is similar in construction to the Hoosier LM series. We run our SD44 against the LM20 and our MD56 against the LM40.
