Medial Pro tires last a long time and hook up great.

what kind of track surface do you run on, and does it change drastically throughout the day?

Wow, I think I've heard of just about every tire avaliable in this thread now, lol! I guess that because you never gave enough details on the surface of the track. If its really super dusty like my local track was last year (I'm talking in some spots over an inch of dust) as well as some clean hard packs spots I would say that a step pin will hook up great but wont last too long, I found that the Werks W's were quite good on this surface and lasted forever. Now if its hard packed with just a thin layer of dust something like a crime fighter, holeshot, Werks Lugz, or similar would be good.

This is a vid of the track

http://images.domino.org/d/126880-1/norcvid.WMV

It is very dry as we don't add any water.
Some of the tires mentioned work well but don't last 10 mins.So a nice balance between grip and wear rate would be best.

I run on the same track as Wheelnut, and I have found that the Proline Crimefighers M2 last super long, with decent traction. There is a bit of slide in the corners sometimes, but it seems to behave predictably enough to compensate. I can get a couple race days out of a set of tires, and that includes the qualifiers and the 25min main.

In fact, I took my 2 sets of Crimefighters from the last half of last year, and Im still using them this year.

Now for outright traction on a track like ours, we have found little that can compete with the Panther Komodo II's. They hook up super hard in the dry, and plow through the dusty to get to the dry underneath. Downside is they don't last long at all.

So, budget... or bank. If you find a tire with awesome grip and long wear, id like to hear it.
