Default What does it mean...

..when a tire is listed as 30 degrees or 35 degrees etc? I thought that was shore hardness.

Degree usually means the same as Shore. At least in Much More rubber tires it does.

It's got to be 35 shore.

Personally, I like my tires to be 360 degrees.

OK one more question. How does one determine the tire hardness to use? I know it depends on the track surface but is there some rule of thumb or would I have to have a bunch of different tires in different hardnesses?

When in doubt, ask the fast guy what he is running. You may not be able to mimic every thing the fastest guy at the track does but you can usually buy the same type of tire.
