I've ran a set of 50's since October of last year. I've been racing 3 times a month on Asphalt. Wear is relative to driving style and track surface.. Great Tires and Rims

+1 I ran my Sweep 50's for 4 gallons of racing. They still had rubber on them when I pulled them off. A guy I work with is using them now haha.

Like it's been stated before, hands down, the best rubber tires and nylon wheels for GT!!

Brian, did you run the 55s on Saturday. I meant to ask and forgot. How did you like them. I ran them on mine and thought they held up very well.

I ran the 50's in the first Qualifier, I switch after that to the 55's. I like them better for the hot humid day for sure. they were very consistent through the entire run.

You were very consistent yourself. That was some serious fun. Andy is on our back door now and it's only going to get better.

if we could get Andy, Russ and Anthony to switch to Open it would be awesome. That would make for some epic races.

Andy is running open as soon as the point series ends, and I'm going to give Anthony a nudge that way. You work on Russ and let's make it happen. I'm sure that class would step up a notch.

nice, I've been working on Russ. He is planning on getting a new engine sometime and will then be switching. He as just running spec because he was running the S2 axial motor.

So at what track temps so I go from the 50's to the 55's? Last Sunday the track was running the 130's and I tried out my 55's and really liked them. I tried pushing them trying to get them to over heat, but they stayed consistent.
