Not sure if they were EXP or other, did not keep the label.

Anyway, again, not a pleased customer.
If the track surface is rough sweep QTS 32 may wear out fast. They work great on a smooth asphalt or carpet though.
For rough surface, I would recommend to choose OG-spec or EXP40 these tires have high traction with longer life.

Thanks for the compound info Ryan Lee. If you are affiliated with SR could you maybe suggest they add that info to their site. Cheers

Had another great meet using Sweep Real Blues as TC Spec tire. The Real Blues are giving LOADS of traction on our CRC FastTrack carpet Wear was minimal, wheels are strong and I didn't need to re-glue at all. Very STOKED with Sweep Racing tires. Can't wait to try out some EXP's on asphalt this weekend

How good are these tires for an outdoor ashpalt track with med to high bite with the outside temp around 80.

I haven't personally tried the R32s, and not sure if anyone I race with have. But Kody and Korey have tried the EXP32 with temps around 80, and found them to be way too soft.

Track temp is more important than air temp, I think. Take your temp gun and measure the track surface.

Sent Sweep an email with similar track conditions here in El Paso, TX and was recommended to use the EXP36 tires. Ordered, shipped and awaiting arrival for some practice mid-week, before Saturday races. I normally use the Sorex 32R, but they were out fairly quickly. Realy look forward to trying these Sweep tires and appreciate the technical assistance that was provided by Sweep Racing.

EXP36's wore much quicker than Sorex32's in warm weather on asfault, would recommend the EXP40 series for comparable tire.

Default will the mini wheels fit an rc18r?

hi,
This may seem like an odd question.
Will the Mini wheels/tires fit on an RC18r?
Maybe with a wheel adaptor?
The 18r has terrible tire/wheel choices and I've been scouring the internet to find a good tire option.
thanks,

What tires would have a little more traction than the Kitty Rug EXP-30PPLS for carpet? The track seems to get cold at night and could use a little more traction.

Whatever happened to the rubber tires for 1/12th pan cars that Sweep was working on? Was it decided not to pursue that route?
