Will these tires pass tech?

The club I'm going through says tires need at least 3/32" and more than 50" tread. I know I have more than 3/32", but not sure of the 50%. I also have a very thin crack running through one of the treads, you can see it below.

Re: Will these tires pass tech?

First, what a dumbass rule. Sounds like a club that wants to keep us R-comp people away.

Second, there is no way for any of us to guess at what this club will say to you. 50% tread? 50% of what?

Tires must be free of stress cracks and have at least 50% of tread life and no less than 3/32-inch of tread. Performance shaved tires acceptable upon approval.

What a joke of a rule.

Most tires start at 10/32 and are considered bald (legally) at 2/32.

This means that half worn is 6/32 but you are allowed until 3/32? That contradicts.

But then you are allowed to shave.

Completely messed up.

I guess it depend on the mood of the inspector. I'd say they should be fine, but it wouldn' hurt to contact the club race coordinater and discuss ahead of time. The club I autox with will bend some of their own rules, as long as everybody's being safe and having fun.
