Default Stadium truck tires on carpet

Do people run the mini pins in the front and rear? Thanks

Used the mini pin rears and stagger fronts with good success. They almost have too much grip. Make sure your ride height is low. I've also played around with AKA Chainlinks in front to give me a little push in the turns to help me cut down on traction rolls.

Most guys around here that run on astro run these...

Full pins in the rear, and usually just the V's in the front (trim off most of the pins), with the outer edge of the tire superglued.

I run the Schumacher Stagger Rib fronts with the outer rows trimmed down and the Schumacher mini pin rears on my T5M. The truck is glued to the track!
