Default Pulling the lugs off your tires, whats the cause?

These are AKA premounts gridirons and have had it happen to other brands of tires mostly small pins...And its not only me thats woundering why this is happening. Any clues of why?

Two things cause it , to soft of compound for the track surface , or the track surface it self it ripping the lugs off . You did mention its a stony track , do you have any pictures of the surface ?

Stony track+tire unloading can easily cause that. And a too soft compound can as well.

Heres a few pictures of the track, but its hard to see the stones in the pictures. They are 3/4" to 1" crushed quarry stones and kinda sharp. Quite a number of times they will traction rolled my buggy in the turns and you can see the stone rolling down the track after you kicked it loose. Love the track by all means its just a little hard on soft small pin tires, just never saw tires that ware like that, till this last racing season. What would a good tire, that will give a good bite and last longer?

harder compound on a surface like that. with the stones, soft compound will get ate up fast, def with wheel spin.

Thats weird man i ran on a hard surface with ruts and ive used aka soft I-beams on my E-Truggy it did rip off a few lugs off on the side on the rear end but still had grip good.

Although i did notice more wheelspin but all i have is soft compound tires so they cant go to waste.

Because ruts aren't stones/rocks and i beams have larger lugs with more rubber. A very big diffrence. The reason why your loosing the pins is either wrong compound, tire is old, or ur using the tire at the wrong application. For a track like that either go soft or try impacts.

Yea true i actually used proline m3 caliber truggy tires and they hooked up better with no lugs wareing or coming off the side there smaller lugs.

Na the I-beams were pretty new not the calibers i bought them used.

Trust me man a medium compound will not have enough bite on a dry outdoor track that i raced on.

I race electric so i need much grip as i can

yes ...have a set of calibers but seem to keep them on the rim lol.
Also my factory glued bow-ties pulled off the rims too at the last race there...that sucks! Dont know whats up with pro-lines...they just dont seem to stick to the rims like aka's.
