well wheels and tires main depend on
your track and surface
better to ask the fast or top drivers what they are using.
for me on astro
its
1 shumacher mini pins m2
2 panther commodo fragon 2s m2
3 hobao anglespikes
4 jc sabretoothes
also have a full set of each wheel and tires as minipins andangles need trimming to be used
all are mounted on proline v2 rimms

AKA City Blocks Soft (MOST conditions)
Proline Bowties medium (wet and muddy)
Proline Holeshots (100% blue groove ONLY)
I don't have a 4th tire. If it tells you anything, I have 3 sets of City Blocks on hand but only 1 of each of the other.

1. AKA City Block soft

2. AKA Crossbrace soft

3. AKA I-Beam medium

4. AKA Grid Iron soft

Truggy

1. AKA Grid Iron soft

2. AKA City Block soft


If you are going to spend your hard earned money on tires, you should make sure you get more than you pay for. With AKA's you get 1.5 to 2x's the tread life and they hook up anywhere!

In no order:

1. AKA CityBlock Softs
2. AKA I-Beam Softs
3. AKA Gridiron Med.
4. AKA CrossBrace Soft

I have every AKA pattern in every compound, but these are the 4 I seem to find myself running most for the tracks I have come across.

Crowbars or crossbows, maybe 7's if the track is really loose, Soft compound, they last forever, and have great traction.
