Default Question about rubber tire ratings.

Could someone tell me what the difference is in rubber tire ratings. I'm not real sure what 24, 28, 30, etc all mean.

Higher number is a harder tyre. Harder tyres generally work better in higher grip or higher temperatures.

Unfortunately there is no rule of equivalency between the different manufacturers, so one 30 may run a little different to another.

It depends on application, for example racing on carpet you need softer in comparion with on road you need harder tires.
