Tire: Goodyear Eagle Superspeedway Radials
Set limits: Sprint Cup: 4 sets for practice/qualifying and 6 sets for  the race
Tire Codes: Left-side -- D-4596; Right-side -- D-4630
Tire Circumference: Left-side -- 87.99 in. (2,235 mm); Right-side --  88.50 in. (2,248 mm)
Technical Inspection Inflation: Left Front -- 30 psi; Left Rear -- 30  psi;                                                      Right Front -- 55 psi; Right Rear -- 50 psi

Notes: While teams in both NASCAR series in action at Talladega this weekend will run the same left-side tire code (D-4596), they will run distinct right-side codes . . . Sprint Cup teams will be on a new right-side tire code (D-4630) . . . compared to what these teams ran at Talladega in May, this right-side features a compound change for better wear . . . Goodyear engineers made the change based on what they have  seen of the track surface, which is now eight years from it's last re-pave (2006) . . . 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.
