Default Tires for Carpet Facing

Which tires should I get for indoor carpet racing? I lose control with my stock 4-Tec wheels if I go too fast on carpet.

Generally, a good starting foam tire setup is plaids in the front and purples. Hope that helps.

i have had great luck with the cyan magenta combo for parma. they last forever. (kinda) great traction, no chunking at all. just cut them down. i start at 57 mm.

A general starting poing is 40F and 37R, from there you can go harder or softer depending on the track
