Default Contact A30 rubber carpet tyres

Has anyone used the Contact A30 rubber carpet tyres from Schumacher and has any feedback? We're running in an event later this year with these as the control tyre, and if there are any hacks/tips to their use it'd be good to know.

they are about the same as sorex tire , but I still ran jaco blues and gravity on carpet since thatís the spec tire thatís used in almost every major/club race.

I thought they were a pretty good value but did seem to chunk easier and deeper into the surface just from rolling over small dome markers. The jaco, jft, and ulti hold up better, ...I think the jaco are toughest and longest lasting (but harder to find).

I was running on asphalt.
