I ran sorex 20's all around and had plenty of traction, but switched back to takoff 27's because they are lighter. I clean my tires with googone and use WD-40 for traction compound and never had a problem.

Default tires

Has anyone ever tried to lighten the takeoff rims by drilling holes in the dished rims?

Has anyone ever tried automotive belt dressing to clean and dress your tires?

I use brake cleaner to clean my tires.Clean your tires after every run and then put the sauce on..Most euro guys use JB inserts (blue or yellow) because they are so light..For CS-27 use JB yellow or Echo Red "high traction"
