Default my track

well in san antonio texas it gets pretty hot so most of us use sorex 36R tires and we might even need to use sorex 40R tires!! sorex have the best feel to me but if you need a good cold weather tire you should try the cs22 by take off that is the bomb for colder weather but if you track temp. is over 110 degrees i would go with the 36R or 40R if it gets super hot

Ok, Cool

Because here slicks are the best tires we can use on electrics. And I wanted to know which was the best brand of rubber slick tires.

Juan, you do realize that Jaco only makes foam tires? They don't make rubber tires.

hey,

you could try cs tyre's, you can get 4 different temp tyres and you can buy pre glued versions as well, it's the tyre they are using at the worlds later this year

hope this helps you?

I use sorex 32R or 36R rubber tires or the Take off Cs- 27's or 32's. They are all great tires and work just abotu anywhere when the temp is right. So far my favorite is the sorex 36R though.
