    You guys are overthinking this.

    I have to respectfully disagree. When it comes to safety, one can never be too careful. If the weigh rating on the tire isn't enough, and you wreck cuz excessive heat blows the tire or it rolls the bead or some other unfortunate circumstance occurs, I would hate to know I could have saved putting my car into a wall by ponying up a few more dollars. Especially since, at the track I usually go to (Fontana, California AAA Speedway) you can see 150mph on a banked section of NASCAR track after you battle through the road coarse section. I would hate to have a tire failure at speeds like that. It would completely wreck your car and you would be lucky to walk away I think.

    I have the Hoosier GrandAM tires, build for the porky GT cars. Driver at 150+ at VIR. No firey ball of death to report.

    Check your tire-pressures. If they are getting too high, then you have a problem.
