Cool WHAT TIRES TO USE?

I AM RACING AT A COUPLE OF TRACKS HERE IN ARIZONA, AND I AM NOW RUNNUNG BOWTIES. IM LOOKING FOR A BETTER TIRE IF THERE IS ONE.
THE TRACKS HERE ARE DRY AND SLIPPERY. EVEN WHEN THEY WATER IT JUST DRIES UP TO QUICK.

Firstly, please turn your caps lock off. It is difficult to read and is considered yelling. Thank you.

For tires, just check out what the fast guys at the track are using. They usually have already found the best tires to use. Bow Ties are great all around tires and they work quite well on harder dusty tracks and have a good lifespan. Personally I use Panther K2's for most tracks that just aren't quite hard enough to groove up.

Crime fighters seem to be the all around tire, especially on those conditions. If bow ties arn't cutting it, Crime fighters are usually the next option, then maybe Knuckles 2.0. Like posted earlier, Komodo dragons will work as well as the Crime fighters
