I ran them last year on carpet. They did ok - not as much traction as the Sorex I was used to, but the lasted alot longer.

I tired type c's on high grip asphalt and they were again, ok. not great but not bad. I'll take sorex, shimizu, yokomo, or take off over them any day.

acid_rain182 - bro, tried on carpet a few months ago... to be honest the tires was not that good. i'd go for sorex 24's or 28. but you can use them on asphalt...indoor that is. happy racing!
