on the tracks that I run, AKA Cityblocks are the best all around tire.

the hard pack, groove of the tracks makes the tread pattern the best tire choice.

Silver compound Sweep Exegons will always grab some great traction, clear out well, and are very resistant to traction roll.

The only two tires I own for truggy are pink HB megabytes and blue JC crosshairs.

Either cityblock or caliber. If there's a little loose stuff on top then caliber Nd outdoor definatly caliber. The citiblocks defiantly last longer. And both in soft or m3 compound.

soft city blocks

I've tried several other tires and always end up running these. They work great on pretty much every surface I run on.

I do not run truggy, but my teammate does. I would have to say that the new Square Armour by Sweep seem to be the ticket in almost every condition I have seen. Whether well packed and damp, dry and blown out, or blue groove, his truck works well with them. Sliver (Super Soft) wear real well (better than CityBlocks) and are the ticket for the weather we are having in NoCal right now. Once summer temps and humidity start, go with the Reds (soft).

The Exagons work well too, but he constantly goes back to the Square Armours and has put away his AKA (which he used to swear by) and ProLine brand tires.

Excellent prices too with free shipping (for orders over $25.00) on sweepracingusa.com
