Default 1/10th tires

I am new to onroad and looking for something that explains tires. Things I am looking for include what tire to use based on temp, the differences between manufactures, etc.

Rubber tires for Dummies Read the whole thing. Old, but still applicable and will give you some basic vocabulary. There's no easy answer, if that's what you're looking for.

As I've said before, there is a VERY GOOD REASON why premounts are successful. It's because they work 99% of the time for 99% of the racers out there.

The trick is finding the RIGHT tires for your application, set up, and conditions!

Welcome to rubber tire racing.

Just be aware that there are SPEC tires (great life, good traction) and PREMIUM tires (moderate life, great traction). There are no free lunches, and too many people get wrapped up in comparing SPEC to PREMIUM (which is apples and oranges). There are no really bad tires, just ones that are better for certain applications at certain times.
