Which tire is “best” is really subjective to many variables and what the specific needs of the IGT racer are.
You have to consider: what you’re looking for, track surface conditions, available traction, set-up, cost, availability and the specific tire being required for use as the “Spec” tire by the event organizer or sanctioning body.
In all fairness to the Kyosho V-Slick, Twister/ATS & Medial Pro tires, they all work very well and have their strong points. I’ve found that on any given day, any of them can get my car on the podium.
The Twister/ATS & Medial Pro tires are pre-mounted, offer long life and real good traction, but don’t count out the Kyosho V-Slicks. They may not be pre-mounts, but with the right track conditions & set-up, they’re real fast. I’m also looking forward to trying out the PMT tires too.
Wish I could give a “clear-cut” answer to “which tire is better”, but truth be told, I have at least 1 set of each in my arsenal. Sometimes I try a different brand for each qualifier and pick the winner for the day; while other times I “chase” track conditions with the same set.
If you can, get a set of each and you’ll have more tuning options available.
See ya at the races.
