The wheel is easy, and the tire itself is a C temp range (of the tire when run properly or the track surface???), but in this case (seasosned carpet, but dirty, dry, and not too much grip yet), what makes the thin pink inserts more appropriate over the LS inserts? Even though this is an indoor carpet track, it's basically a warehouse, and track temp when it's cold out (like now and headed into the winter) will be right at or below 24C.

The really fast guys at my track are running Sorex 24s, but right now they're hard as heck to find and no one who has 'em is letting them go anywhere but on their cars or in the trash when they're run to shreads.

Like Kenny said, the QTS 32's are SUPER dialed.

I'm new to rubber tire racing and am looking for a tire to run on a carpet track with no groove. Not enough on road cars to make a groove. Are the kitty rug tires good for this.

I just tried a set of those 32s with the white rims. I loved them. Really good consistent traction and the hexs fit perfectly. Nice and snug, but not too tight and certainly deep enough to hold solidly.

I will definitely be buying these tires regularly. Great product.

What is the difference between the EXP and the QTS series of premounts?

The QTS are more of a "spec" tire. They have a good balance between cost and performance. They are made with a more natural rubber, and have a lower sidewall. They work AWESOME on carpet and are comparable to other major spec tires out like like the Jaco Blue, and Solaris Medium.

The EXP line of tires is our all out performance tire. They do cost more, but they are a higher performance tire. I would best compare these for Sorex tires. It's more of a synthetic blend of rubber, much softer. I use these whenever a spec tire isn't specified .

will be trying the SWEEP EXP 36's tomorrow....temp will be 33 degress so the track will be even hotter......im used to using MM32's which are great for our track and i have tried the RP40's in testing but i dont think it was hot enough for the latter...

i hope they go well as i ended up getting 15 sets for fellow club racers...
will keep you informed....

I bought some sets of Sweeps (EXP 32 and 36) after struggling with crappy Jaco's. I've ran one set of the 32's for 2 full race days now (8 total heats+practice) and the tires still run smooth and are as consistent as the day I pulled them out of the package. They also seem to hold their shape better. Love 'em!
