Like integra says it will depend on track conditions and how much dust is on it, how moist it is, ect. I usually run the smallest pin I can without the dust packing the tires up.

I agree with pitpop. When AKA came out with the super softs, i tested them and they had way more traction than the softs, and we found that the super softs had better wear and lasted way longer than the softs.

it's amazing how that works, the super soft in some cases wears better because the pins flex... we have been running these a lot, and they are really good on wet or dusty conditions, we like softer

I think the only tire that compares with aka is the m3 caliper, but they still seem to wear way faster than aka. Prolines stuff just seems to wear to quick for my liking.

The caliber tires are great but you are right they do wear very very fast. They have been very good to my on the truggy. On the buggy I love the SS city blocks or SS grid irons if the track is right. The SS grid irons were very very hooked up on my truggy a couple weeks ago. I bumped my qual from 8 to 3 with the right tire combo. The AKA stuff also wears very very well. I ran soft I beam and city blocks over the summer in the 100+ weather and they lasted awhile. The M2 prolines on the other hand well not so long, great tire for the truggy but not very cost effective. The SS AKA stuff is perfect for winter indoor racing.
