I personally like them more. At my track, the popular tires were Solaris and Sorex, but I was interested in these. A few guys run them and I bought a set. The ones that come preglued on the yellow wheels do not crack as much as the others, and the tires seem to grip the best. Keep in mind I'm on a very high traction track. I liked the Sweep OG Specs also but the wheels were more fragile. The EXP36's are definitely worth a try on a high traction track.

They are good tires. I use the EXP30 and EXP36 tires on a medium to low grip parking lot and they still grip well. They seem to last better than Jaco's that I've seen other people using at my track.

Unless it pretty cold, I would stay with EXP 36s. They are a smidge softer than the popular Sores 36R which is so common on asphalt. EXP 30s are extremely soft and gummy, and have a tendency to wear quicky if not used in the proper conditons (carpet, cool non abrasive asphalt are good). I usually find EXP 36s suit a wider range of conditions and are my first choice when going to any new track.

+1, another option is the OG Spec tire as well, it produces very good grip and is long wearing. We recently used it at the Region 12 Championships on an outdoor ashpalt track that was consistently under 80*F. We used them with our Soft (Pink) insert.

When I was @ manassas, I tried the EXP30s, and they didnt have enough grip. They are good pretty much anywhere else, but not there. The sweep R28's would be a better option (or even the R24s)

I've been burning up a set of EXP36s on my mod car (medium grip carpet) and they are holding up fine and get great traction (using Sticky Fingers). The car stuck better than my 17.5 on 32s!

In what way? They lose grip, or they wear through on the inside shoulder? If its the former, different tires maybe. If its the latter, probably need some setup change on the car.

Sweep seem to release updates all the time so I think you need to be careful which ones you get. I heard the older exp36s were good for 30 runs or more, the new EXP-36-PP are quite soft and wear out quickly. I had holes in 5 runs in mod on a med grip large asphalt track.

OG Specs are definitely worth a shot. I'm not a pro, but I really liked the way they handled at WCRC..

Our reglemented wheels are Sweep QTS 36 and pink insert on Sweep rims.

We had a huge amount of complaints about these, 3/4 runs and tyres were wrecked, I mean holes and a deep groove.

Since we have worked a bit on chassis set up, I managed to run 9/10 races with a set now, never swap front to back after use, it is crap.

Treated 30 minutes before running and heated up, they are not bad now, but it took a while to get used to them.

I also run 32 on yellow rim, not good really, but it is probably too hot were I live for 32's
