Is there any value in knowing what a guy half way around the world runs on an outdoor dirt track if you run on indoor carpet? That's a simple yes or no question.

If I haven't posted, and you don't know, what type of surface I'M running on. Can you give me an accurate, helpful tire recommendation? Again that's a simple yes or no question.

If I ran the place, I'd address it immediately. You can't run a website that continues to be filled with bad information like what was recommended. I'm still laughing, out door tires for indoor carpet.

If poster doesn't give enough information for you to reply with anything worth reading, then don't bother.

Just continues to make my signature more true. People love to give advice, but usually, it's bad advice.
I give you a lot of crap, socket.. but sometimes your posts are spot on... I would classify this entire thread as Internet Gold!

It's very clear that you have no idea what your talking about.

You are happy for someone to run a dirt tire on a carpet track. Suburb or slick? Yep I would rather in impact for sure, but more so a Schumacher mini pin.

Can you confirm if you have raced in Australia? Since you like I assuming I will do the same and say no. So please let me know since you have no idea what racing is like here how can you speculate that the info I have provide is not valid?

Clearly you don't race off-road much. Cause dirt guys don't carry on like pork chops, that's the onroad princesses

Then from there it goes right off the deep end when the direct customers show up. The record didn't get broken, I think right now it's sitting at 4 posts. However, the guy recommending an outdoor tire for indoor carpet is CLASSIC. I love you guys, I love this place. You make my signature even more true.

A level headed response is what was given in the first post.

"We can't make a choice for you, because we don't race at your local track, you need to speak with the locals."

At what point was an outdoor tire recommended for indoor carpet. Oh yeah the proline suburb and slick.....

It's not unusual for dual use carpet/ozite tracks to not allow pin or spike tires. The onroad guys are concerned about the pins pulling up carpet threads. Some will allow bar type tires.

Your buddies post was USELESS to the OP and had ZERO value.

If a guy in Texas asks what tires he should put on his full size truck (with ONLY him knowing that it will never leave the pavement). Should I suggest he buy a set of deep lug all terrain tires simply because where I live they work/are needed this time of year?? Ya, didn't think so
Are you stupid?

yes.

Front tires is my issue now. I see people say ribs are run upfront. What exactly are those? Sorry for all the questions just new and wanting to learn.

It doesn't even pay to try and explain anything to you. Thread done.

If the OP has further questions there are several people in this thread that I'm sure would help if he contacts them.
