Default Help with tyres

Hi all

Can anyone recommend a tyre for unprepaired low grip parking lot/playground racing?
We have tried most compounds of slick but they work. The only thing that we have found that really grips is Pit d20 wet tyres and these wear out too quick as they are getting too hot.

Any ideas would be most appreciated

Medial Pro solid rubber tyres. I was in the same position and had already tried minipins and did not get on with them.

Hi Dan

We were gonna try the Medials but were not sure which compound to go for as there is a few. What compound have you got?

It really depends on what temp the track gets up to. When they overheat they really drop off. I used the intermediate compound but in the cold go for the soft. I found they really work well with a spool.
