IT-S tires?

So what type/ model of tires is everyone running on for IT-S right now? I've allways used hoosiers in the past, but it seems that there are alot more worthy options out there at the moment...any reccomendations?

A lot of people with have their own opinions but Hoosier R6 tire is the current tire to beat. I know that at least three track records were broken with an RX-7 on the R6 compound.

Totally different cars, but the T1 Corvette guys are running either Hoosier A6s or Kumho V710s. What sizes are the RX-7s running? I have renewed interest in getting my ITE '87 RX7 T2 on track this year!

Don't you all mean R6's, the A6 is the autocross tire and is meant to heat up quickly and isn't meant for the extended high temperatures that will be engountered in a road race.
