Default Sorex 28R on low-grip asphalt

Hi guys!

What inserts do you recommend for Sorex 28R tyres on low-grip asphalt (outdoors)? Will Yokomo precision wheels work?( TW-1012-2)

Thanks in advance!

Are you using those just because you are outdoors on low-grip asphalt or are you using those because they are the correct tire for the track surface temp?

Either way, with 28R I would just use a medium insert. I think a good rule of thumb is to increase the hardness of the insert as the hardness of the tire goes up. So I use firm inserts on my 36R Sorex tires.

037-f, will work depends on how much traction you need, softer for low bite harder for high bite.

Key statement.

Peoples definition of "COLD" and "HOT" are vastly different. Low grip pavement would have me grabbing for the 20s or 24s. But if your running in 30C track temps then your best to run the 28s.

They may not be too hard, but they may not completely fill the tire up, from what I've seen. That's one reason why HPI & Echo inserts are pretty popular, because they do a better job of filling the tire, no gaps between the insert & tire. I'd also reccomend something like HPI reds for those, I've used them myself & were quite pleased with the results....
