Both the Sprint Cup and Camping World Truck Series will use the same tire combination for their race weekend at Talladega Superspeedway.

Sprint Cup teams will have three set of tires for practice and qualifying and six sets for the Hellmann’s 500.

Camping World Truck Series teams will be allowed four sets of tires for the entire weekend.

Here’s the tire into:

Tire Codes: Left-side — D-4596; Right-side — D-4630

Tire Circumference: Left side — 87.91 in. (2,233 mm); Right side — 88.39 in. (2,245 mm)

Minimum Recommended Inflation: Left front — 27 psi; Left rear – 27 psi; Right front — 50 psi; Right rear — 50 psi.

For Sprint Cup teams this combination of left and right-side tires dates back to the October 2014 race. Truck teams began running the left-side tire code (D-4596) in 2014, and the right-side tire code (D-4630) in 2015 . Teams in both of these series have also run this left-side tire at Daytona this season. This is the only track at which these teams ran this right-side tire this year. As on all NASCAR ovals greater than one mile in length, teams are required to run inner liners in all four tire positions at Talladega. Air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.
