Are you sure that Lowrance's tires are blistered? Everyone at my raceway has tires that look like that, the usually look like that after one heat. We race on sealed blacktop. If this is not normal for our tires to look like this, then how do we prevent it?

i used sorex 36's on the same track that "ate up" the 32's and they lasted much longer. after about 10 runs, the 36s are still in good condition - no blistering and still have good grip. i think ill save the 32's for cooler temperatures or for the mains.

i think sorex tires are much lasting than tamiya type b ones.....use that to race and i thought belted tires last long...after one race, can scrape them off soon...my sorex 36 tires still in good piece...too bad they can't use for race

I have just started racing rubber on carpet ( i am used to foam on carpet ) and i was wondering how do i know when my rubber tires are worn out? Can I tell merely from a visual inspection? Or is it something that i just suddenly feel in the car while racing? I am currently running sorex 24's with hpi red inserts and 20minutes of race time on them so far. I am just curious about how often and when do I need to replace tires.

Cracker-For carpet racing with rubber tires the first run is the best and the tires get slower after that, so put new ones on as often as you can afford. I know that is extreme but that is the way it is. Depending on the tire/insert combo you should get 10-30 good runs out of a set of tires that are within 1 to 2 tenths of new ones.
