stormer is wrong in saying those are med-firm. those are med inserts. regardless of that try going with a 28r with a med or firm "a" thick insert. it will have a little less air gap.

Well, my performance has been hurting for the past few months and was wondering why. I followed the advice of this thread and read the tread of the tire.

Is this bad?

I read my tires, and they read " you suck".

Impact..try 28's with C - Medium Inners..

more airgap. which will produce more grip for a slow speed technical course.

28's are about as low as most go unless its damp...the 24's chew out too quickly

(i have some 20's you should feel how soft they are!)

IMPACTPLAYR - O I though you left them on for like 20 minutes. ops.. The indoor track is pretty abrasive, it took 2mm off my foams instead of the 1/2mm that the outside track used to take off(during a race day).

wouldn't more air gap cause the tires to "squish" more thereby increasing the wear on the tires...
