By the way, the track is run on a hardwood gym floor.
I've not used block tyres myself on such flooring, but from local club knowledge on a similar surface, rally or block tyres do not cut it on a gym floor, as the profile of the block does not flex enough.
Pins will flex, and because they have a smaller profile, they will find their way through a dusty low grip gym floor easier
Block tyres are better suited to off road terrain, loose mud,gravel etc...
hope that helps...
