Default AKA choices to make simple .

Intendent to reduce Tyres Types & Treads, & make easier, What would be recomended to have at the races?

I,d like to work with the minimum tyres choices .

I-BEAN - - - - soft - ---- Loose Dirt to few Dust
CITYBLOCK - - soft ----- No Dust to Wet(Moist) No Mud
CROSSBRACE - medium -- Wet, MUD.


Please Will this choices work great ?

If so, with I-BEAN & CITYBLOCK, I will be set for all dry conditions !?
I race in Hot Brazil.... Will Mediun compound on theese choices also be a good try ?
Thanks.
Ps Just trying to make easier at the races...

I'd use Gridiron's or Impacts in place of the cityblocks for the condition you described. If you want a tire that wear's a little longer try the new impact's. They are really nice on clean groove.

Cityblocks always work better for me when its hard packed and dusty.

I personally love I-BEAN's LOL... that got me a laugh.

Soft I-beams work pretty much everywhere for me. Even it hot conditions.
