Goodyear Tire Fast Facts - Pocono

Tire: Goodyear Eagle Speedway Radials:

Set limits: 5 sets for practice/qualifying and 9 sets for the race

Number of Tires: Left-side 1,250; Right-side 1,250

Tire Codes:Left-side -- D-4548; Right-side -- D-4520

Tire Circumference: Left-side -- 87.4 in. (2,220 mm); Right-side -- 88.3 in. (2,243 mm)

Technical Inspection Inflation:
Left Front -- 26 psi; Left Rear -- 26 psi;
Right Front -- 36 psi; Right Rear -- 36 psi

Minimum Recommended Inflation:
Left Front -- 17 psi; Left Rear -- 17 psi;
Right Front -- 37 psi; Right Rear -- 34 psi

This is the same combination of left and right side tires that NASCAR Sprint Cup teams ran twice at Pocono last season. These teams also ran this right side tire code (D-4520) twice on Phoenix's recently repaved surface in 2012. For 2013, Pocono is the only track on which these tire codes are scheduled to be run. As on all NASCAR ovals greater than one mile in length, teams are required to run inner liners on all four tire positions at Pocono. Air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.
