+1 Tire wear is very expensive on any weekend on a blue groove track, I have seen several racers go thru AKA's very quickly just qualifing. VP Pro tires do not have the tire wear other brands have and I can use the same set at least 2 weeks on a blue groove track.

My vote goes to the Losi eclipse red in the hot summer 90+ degrees and green anything under 90 degrees. They work well on wet, dry, hard packed, blue groove, loose loamy. They may not be the 100% perfect tire for every track but they will work where other tires may work on just 1 type of track. Then there's the Truhe secret - if you want or need more steering then go to the red or green Losi xbt tread in the front. So far I haven't founda track where the eclipse don't do well.

If you havent tried them HB tires are very good and last a long time and i would say the Kaos tires or the block tire would work on just about any track with good results.

As for just an all around, all purpose tire, I would say the JC Hitman. I've taken a liking to the Sub-C's as well. Double Dee's work well in most conditions. Blue compound for all, I only run yellow compound if the track temp is super hot and hard packed.

My favorite tires at my local track are AKA Cityblocks Soft Compound and AKA Gridirons Medium Compound. At the beginning of the race when the track has a clean racing line but is not blue grooved I run the Cityblocks. Then later on during the race when the track has taking some rubber my favorite it the Gridirons. I want to try some JConcepts tires and maybe Proline Calibers. I like the Calibers when I ran buggy but haven't tried them in truggy.
