Default tire wear question?

Im running rubber tires on an asphalt track. Im getting a lip on the inside of both front tires. And lastnight it wore all the way thru the rubber. Why am I getting this? Is something set wrong like the chamber?

I would say the insert isn't wide enough for the tyre, and/or it's too soft for the conditions.

So probably some harder inserts? That makes sense.

I had the same with sorex tires. I solved it by using thicker inserts (like the sorex A instead of B).

I say get a medium insert for your tire and make sure its a perfect fit inside of the tire before sliding the rim....

The insert is too thin and because of that the rubber is rolling over onto the bead when you corner.

I think the tires Im using have another brands insert. So I take it from now on to use the same brand as the tire.

Get a sorex 36R match with medium insert. It runs great on asphalt race track..

If they are wearing on the inside then you have to much negative camber, if there wearing on the outside not enough, or to soft of an insert.
