Default Crime fighters, bowtie or i beams?

I need some big lug tires, and I am choosing between these three ( all soft compound), these are my only option at lhs. I need a tire to move some dirt on a loamy track. Already have: city blocks, calipers, grid- irons, revolvers, hole shots.

I am leaning towards crime-fighters.

I would go with I Beams. And if you wan more steering try your city blocks up front. Maybe a crime bow setup. How loamy is the track? Is it going to be dry or moist?

Well actualy I just need it to fill a void in my selection. My local tracks is either grooved up or loamy. No in-between really.

I-beam's are a must have in anyones Tire arsenal. They are a great all around tire and work just about anywhere. Also one of AKA's longer lasting tire

I Beams work good for me in loamy conditions. Another tire that works well for me in those conditions are Cross Braces.

At this price these are great for loamy conditions when the weather is warm.

Marcus, get some subcultures you'll be very happy with those they work really good at Action. Get them in blue compound.

Already got the beams, it was very dry and dusty out there today and on power steering was incredible didn't lose any sidebite (up to a point), drifts a little of power, but that is my horrendous driving more then anything. Very glad I got them. All in all, I was impressed. I also thinkined up my diff fluid a good bit and that helped as well. Gotta work all weekend, but I will be racing next weekend if it kills me!!

How did yours include shipping? I went to check out and the cheapest shipping was $15 for 3 sets of tires. I backed out since medium compound is not a popular choice.
