Would you then recommend the EXP-40 tires on the white rims or those on the yellow rims?
through the US marketing channel, EXP40 only available with white HARD EXP wheels for good reasons.

you may get diffrent color or insert combo, should be all good for your needs.

good luck

Thanks to you guys.

Meanwhile, I made a mistake, and after checking, the Sweep that were dead after few packs were 32 but QTS (and not R like I thought and ordered).

I also tried Sorex 36, and they take more packs, so maybe the best would be the EXP.

R will last longer.
EXP should be fastest in lap time.

Thanks,
I will certainly try both EXP and R.
This way, I will be able to compare it with QTS.

Friday I received the new OG Spec premounts fresh from the factory in Korea to test out at West Coast Raceway for the 1st XRAY Challenge to be held there on April 29th - May 1st 2011. They are mounted on the EXP rim (EXP-WAWH) with the Aqua Medium insert (EXP-M). I waited toward the end of the day when most of the TC drivers had left to start testing to ensure that the grip had built up on the track (indoor asphalt) and also so I could have as close to uninterrupted sessions as possible while testing. I put a total of (7) 6 minute sessions on the tires and they look that same on run 7 as they did on run 2 with NO loss in performance!!! It is a "thing of beauty" at how good they look, the wear pattern is excellent!!! During each run the lap times remained consistent from start to finish and never fell off! This tire is simply amazing and is as fast as the other tires some of the guys have been running at the track. To say that these tires are impressive is truly an understatement!!!

Yes sir! Can't wait, spoke with Brian and got a time line of when I may get my hands on some.

My race yesterday was great. Very consistent times and awesome grip on a med/low carpet track with EXP 30's that have 16 runs that have not faded at all.

Sweep and Much more used to be basically one and the same. Ryan Lee, the current owner of Sweep Racing Tires used to work for Much More. A few years ago, he split off and made Sweep a separate company. What sweep products that used to be on tower are simply sweep products that were introduced when they were similar companies. Now the way to get sweep products is through Sweep Racing Tires USA.
