I have on sc trucks. They don't work in every condition. But when the tracks right they are money

Generally speaking temperature plays a huge role in traction and compounds

Primes seem to be the tire of choice at the local track (smooth indoor clay).

Depends on the track, we have a track here where primes are the tire of choice and its 70/30 clay I believe, while the other track is all topsoil and we run electrons, primes dont even come close to working there

Outdoor sugar track they are dialed as long as the track is swept. Any marbles and they are sketchy.

Pretty much a bald tire is going react better to being cleaned and sauced

I'm confused I could insert any TYPE of tire into the OP's question and ask the same thing. Dirt Webs, Typos, Hole Shots, Ions, Suburbs..the list goes on.....and on.

ANY tires performance is going to be track dependent. Without the OP knowing what type of track I run on. Or for that matter, he never actually told us anything about his local track, or what anyone else there runs for tires. He simply asked about a specific tire.

My tracks vary from dusty to loamy. IF I simply said Primes sucked on my track would my opinion be valid?

Tires...they're just like butt wipe. Asking your neighbor isn't gonna help, you just gotta try it

You mean like the other 20 threads started every week that ask what the best car is, but never specify what they mean by "best"? Lol.

Yes, that.

Maybe Primes vs worn slicks would be a better phrasing?
