Depends on the compound and the track... If you are running a soft compound on a dry, hard track, they aren't going last long at all. If you will wait for them to water it, the tires will last longer. Personally I like holeshots with some wear. You might try a set of panther clay switches. Those things seem to handle about anything and hold up fairly well.

if you need a small pin that lasts and has great traction, get the AKA Gridiron tire...

+1 on the AKA's there tires and inserts are slowly starting to dominate the racing circuit. Cityblocks, I-Beams and GridIrons are replacing allot of other tires out there
