AKA City Block's in soft 90% of the time.

Medium if its warm and/or the track is grooved.

I-Beam softs if the track is really loamy.

AKA cityblocks or I beams or some combo. I want to try the panthor gators or the j concepts crosshairs. The gators and crosshairs do they fit the LPR wheels or are they mtr type?

This is a 100% not true. My jconcepts tires have never needed balancing. I wouldput them on the balancer and i haven't had to add weight.

AKA med. city blocks are the way to go but give them a few runs they work better after about 2-3 runs.

I got my J concept tires. Waiting for the AKAs.
What do most do to fight the ballooning of the tires? One guy told me duct tape the inside of the tire. Is this what most do or just leave it alone?
