Default Team Orion Rubber Tires and Inserts

Hi all,

I just bought some type C (Medium: 32 shore tyres, for 10 to 55 track temperature) and D (Hot: 40 shore tyres, for 40 to 75 track temperature) tires and inserts Hard and Soft compounds. What are the recommendations for which tire/insert combo or which HPI insert would be better.

Also, is there a link to any specific info regarding tire/insert combos?

Thanks

Those track temps can't be farenheit. Hot track temps are more like 120F-150F.


General rule of thumb:
Tires for cold weather: use softer inserts
Tires for hot weather: use firmer inserts

Orion is a european brand... hence temperatures are quoted in celsius degrees indeed (like in 95% of the world )
