I run both.

However I think it's note worthy that I used the same set of SS Enduros for not only for the last qualifier at Nitro Challenge, but also the A main warm up, the A main and practice at Silverstate through the second qualifier.

Questions?? AKA Super Soft Enduro Wear

So what kind of wear are you guys experiencing with the super soft compound ? How long should I expect these tires to last ?

ive used them for a few weeks of racing, SS compaound. other than slight rounding on the corners they are holding up well. i feel there may be a better tire out there though

not too fond of the enduro yet. have not found a track that these tires are perfect for yet. i am running round 4 of the jbrl next weekedn at Green Flag Raceway and have been told that the track is hard as a rock almost like concrete so these tires might work well if it grooves up. i will definitely try them out. but just havent found that perfect track yet

enduro super soft or soft works almost everywhere foe me. i've used them in hard packed, hard packed with loose "fluff" on top and a loose track, kinda sandy and they haven't failed me yet. i still have a set that probably has 6-8 races on them and they are super soft and they are still working

Too much coffee before bed..........anyhow is here is a pic of a race this past weekend. This car, though not totally hooked up, looked good, and I think these are the Enduro tires.

With the enduro tire, you can typically run a softer compound due to the lug design. For instance, I ran super soft enduros on a track that most people ran M2 or medium compound. After a 30 minute main...the enduro was barely worn... This is an AWESOME TIRE...especially for longer main events!!

This last weekend i ran my Enduro tires at a track that had a Lot of Loamy Sandy like dirt and they worked GREAT i Qualified 3 gone in to the A Maine and a rod let loose in my motor but i was running in 2nd or 3nd when that happened guys at the track could not believe the tires wear hooked up that good.

Thumbs up AKA Enduro Tire Wear

Thanks for the replies regarding tire wear guys. Gonna glue up a set this weekend. I was worried a day at the track would wear them down to slicks, but I'm pretty confident they're gonna last a while now.
