Default good rubber tires

what are some good rubber tires for a fairly hot track. i have had shimizu's which seem to last forever at home. for the track i've used hpi 35r's which are pretty nice. what do you guys recommend?

shimizu's yes, very good tires.

Take Off CS(cheap sh!t) 27, very nice and it come pre-glued.

Sorex 36R, is probably the best of all.

I've been running sorex 32R's, at first I though OMG they wear sooo fast, but it was my setup(it sucked). Once I found a decient setup they started wearing fine. So far my Rears are still going strong at 12+ battery packs. I bought some 36R's for the front on thursday, and will try them out today. The front 32's were so worn I could see the belts. Try out your 36's, the chances are you'll like them.

If you have too much camber the inside of the tyre will wear quicker, I was running 32's that are pretty soft so in a few runs(with a bad setup) I'd caused the tyres to wear a heap on the inside and nearly not at all on the outside. The result was a major groove on the inside of the front tyres. This was at stupid camber angles because my first two races I basically did zero tuning. It was not the tyre, just my inexperience with setup.

I think sorex 36's is the best for warm weather and take off 27 is best for colder weather
