I understand the concept of tyre and insert. My question is; can the insert be harder than the tyre?
I might be a bit slow but I don't understand the question,
Inserts come in different hardnesses and profiles.
Tyres come in different compounds but they are not the same material as the inserts.
You need to find two things.
1) The right compound tyre for where you race.
2) The right hardness and profile of insert to compliment your choice of tyre.
If you want some tyres that are ready to go, try Take-Offs, they come with inserts and a good general match to the tyre.
Hope that helps
