Default Help with tyres please.

Yeah so i know crap all about tyres.
So far i've stuck with my B4's stock ones but their getting worn.
I need some new ones for on grass so what am i supposed to be looking for when i shop for tyres?
As far as i know, the less grip you have the softer tyre your supposed to have?

^ My vast knowledge.

Yeah so could anyone quickly update me please?
Thanks.

For grass I would go with a setp pin, or a tire that has a large pin (spike) this way the tread would work on the grass, and or reach through to the dirt below.

I'm not sure a soft tire would work well on grass. A pin like OG suggested in a firmer compound would be my guess but I have never raced on grass.

go to the hardware store, get about 600 of the shortest screws that you can find, and make these... they will pull wheelies on anything they can dig into, shoot sparks at night on tarmac and wear like steel... because they are!

No seriously though, i agree with a firmer compound step pin for grass, or if you are going to run on multiple surfaces including asphalt, get some proline dirt hawgs. Just don't drive pin tires on pavement or you will be upset with their wear rate.

That's funny as hell. Looks like something out of a Freddy Cruiger movie!
