Questions?? Tire Question

What's a good all around SC tire?

My local outdoor track that'll I'll mostly be messing around at this summer has a loose/dusty surface. Looking for something that doesn't wear too fast if possible.

Was looking at Subcultures, but I can only find them in Green compound and don't have much experience with tires so figured I'd ask.

I personally like the Proline Calibers and the AKA Cityblocks. Both work time after time for me on similar conditions.

Cool, would M2 compound be good? Figure they'd last longer.

I find M2 a little too hard in my opinion. I'd go with M3 or "Soft"

The life is still exceptionally good.
