Default axemans

the axemans will work on hard packed well. If it is high bite you will want medium flexx. for wet conditions ultra flexx will probably be fine.

Are the Condors comparable to Calibers? No one in my area runs VP Pro, so i wanted to try a set.

Thanks

I am on my phone so can't post a pic but you can go to vpprousa.com and check them out. they are more spaced out on the condors but are a similar design.

They look to have a little bigger tread design than the calibers, but i was wondering if they were similar performance wise.

cory,

I have ran my condors in a high bite blue groove and even a sandy loamy track and love them. If the track is clean and abrasive they are dialed. The edge they have seems to lock the car in real well. If you like calibers or city blocks you will definately like the condors too.

I think i'll pick up a set of condors, axmen and maybe even cutoffs.

JBright33,

Hang tight....Two days ago VP PRO USA was closed for the holiday. They'll get back to you ASAP. More than likely today. ; ) They have great customer service.
