Smile What rubber touring tires are there?

I have been using RP36's for several years and now that my supply is drying up I need to switch brands.

I run in a parking lot that is spray with grape soda and the traction is medium and surface is bumpy. The temps is the problem here in central Texas. Our surface runs around 120 to 140 in heat of the day.

I have tried Sorex 36 and 40 but the give up in the heat after a few runs. The Muck Moore, Sweeps, Sweeps EXP and Absolutes all have the same qualities as the Sorex tires. Are they all the same?

I have tried Solrais tires. Great for spec but our club does not do spec tires. Jaco's work great in the lower temps but not in the super high temps.

How many different tires are out there to choose from? Actual tires not companies OEMing them. Take Off(closed from what I hear), Solaris. Sorex and Jaco's. Is there any I missed?

Thanks for the help. Just feel a bit lost after running one tire for so long,
Joe Maxey

Alot of people overlook these rubber tires. . . .


Too bad the softer(colder) ranges are discontinued. Hopefully the 35R won't be discontinued too.
