Ran a set of these tires today on carpet. They were very consistent and I managed to TQ and run within 1 second of my best time. Glue job is awesome as well. I ran them straight out of the package without regluing and had no issues with them. Can't wait to try these things out on the asphalt.

I confirm, on asphalt medium tires have good grip without additives also start with cold ambient temperatures

What are the medium and hard tires actual compounds? 32 and 36? Got some mediums, just wondering what temp range they can handle? The max temp they should be run at.

Thanks

Default New Rims!!

Here some pictures of the new rims. I'll post more pics mounted and on the car.

About the new rims: They are spoke but a dish can be attached for those that like the dish look. Dish is attached by 3 1.5mm screws on the inside of the rim. The wheels have a bevel within the inside lip for better clearance. They flex more then our current rim but still share the same trueness.

The rims will be available in black and white. They will come standard with our premounts starting mid March.

So, the question now is; What color will be the most popular?

I am hosting the TOP GUN SHOOTOUT, in May and knowing that the Solaris tire will be the spec tire, I need to know what rim people want the most.

Can we get some votes here.

Example +1 Black Premount Combo
or + 1 White Premount Combo
