Default Ashphalt tires

Hey, I just want some opinions for ashphalt tires for an electric mod touring car. I will be racing on different tracks throughout the summer. My choices so far;sorex 28 & 32, CS-27's, Yokomo 138M or 139g2.
Which wheels are best and I will have to carry an assortement of inserts.
Any suggestions??

I would stick with the CS-27's as they are they handout of choice at most races. (or is it the Take-Off's?) If you want to go with Sorex, the 28's would be good.
As far as inserts go, I like medium to medium soft.
The CS-27's or Take Off's have them pre mounted on dishes and come out much cheaper than building them yourself. Something like $8-9 bucks a tire which beats the $11-13 to build yourself.

they are takeoff cs27s i believe. and although they may be cheap, they are cheap rims. crack easily.(too easily ) and sumtimes the whole wheel breaks off the hub. otherwise they are great tires. just i dont recommend the wheels.

i think the cs 27s would be the go but i found that the sorex 28r's wear to much the must have a softer rubber thatn take off. i have had some success with the sorex 32r though and they don't ware as much but the only problem is you might need tyre warmers it it is too cold in the morning or night

the 27 compound would be the safe bet with either medium or medium-hard compound insert.

if it is slightly hotter try the 32s but don't use any higher insert than a mediums.

Do NOT use different compounds at one time. Geez.

The CS 27s are good for over 60 degrees. Anything under use the 22s. Don't bother trying the 32s unless the track temp is over 140 and you are chewing the 27s up too quick.

As for the rims, I ran all last year including the NORRCA Nats and never broke the conter out of a wheel. In fact, I only cracked one wheel near the hub and I put some thick CA on it and sold the set to a novice racer. He ran it for weeks. If you're busting the centers out of them then you woulda busted any wheel. Just so happens you were running the Take Off tires.

CS 27s are the best bang for the buch and you will be VERY hard pressed to make another tire go faster and even if you do it will only be faster for one or two runs and even then only by hundredths of a second. That's after you've spent hundreds of dollars finding the majic combination.

generally you should run 1 compound all round. the different compounds help to get more/less grip front or rear

CS-27's.....now what about traction compound? Can I use TQ orange outside? That is what I use indoor on carpet with Jaco foams.

in the UK most people use CS22 but then again track temp dosnt normally exceed 35 degrees.
if hotter then that then definetly CS27 with fastrax yellows,or yokomo softs,works pretty well in hot conditions
