Default Truggy Cross Hairs Vs I-Beam

What do you guys prefer? For an overall all around tire- more for when the track is loose.

I'd go with the Crosshairs for sure. They have a very versatile tread pattern and will be good on loose and hard packed tracks. If it's hard packed then they will feel a little bit slow when they're brand new vs. Sevens or Hybrids but will be perfect after the initial grip wears off. I ran them all last summer on loose tracks and they were great.

well...????
if i "Only had a Choice between the Cross Hairs and I-Beams"
i'd say Cross Hairs.......
but ones that are the same but little less are the HB-KHAOS tires

but all of those are good for vaious track conditions....even Bluegroove!!
just go Softer if the weather is "Colder" and a little harder
if the weather is "Warmer"
so say 72deg or less ...?? SOFT compounds...
AKA-Super Soft,Jconcepts-Blue, HB - Pinks
warmer say 85+ (depending on track conditions)
AKA-Soft/or Med , Jconcepts-Yellow, HB-Reds etc.
