Recommended tires are Bridgestone Hoop.  What if anything does the "Hoop" designator mean? All tires are basically hoops.

It is the name given to a particular type of Bridgestone tyre.
Dunlop made Groundhog tyres.
General tyres made one called Grabber.

You'd have to contact the particular companies to find out how they choose names.

According to my memory Hoop from Bridgestone were recommend early on, maybe on my 2009?

My 2013 leftover has decal and owner's book showing IRC as recommended tire..... based on my experience, I find SilverWing works best with IRC
