Default Muchmore tires?

I'm curious if anyone have experience with the Muchmore tires, both closed cell and regular tires. I'm looking for a tire to use on a high bite carpet track and potentially on outdoor asphalt that I can get in the US.

I've never tried the Muchmore tire on carpet - but the Muchmore Absolute 28s are great in cooler weather, and the 32s work really well once temps reach 75-80 degrees outdoors. Probably the most durable rubber tire I've ever used, and they offer fantastic grip.

Thanks Barry. I'm guessing i'll need 36 for outdoor since temps here get well about 80 in the summer.

I've never seen the need to use the 36s, as the 32s were up to the task of handing 90+ degree outdoor temps. Even on the most abrasive surfaces in 90+ degree heat, the 32s performed exceptionally well.

I'd try the 32s and 36s on the same day under the same track conditions to see what differences there are regarding performance and durability.

We run them a lot in Australia.

the new (old now released last year) rush 36 work very well an most asphalt tracks here.
even when cold ambient you can get them to work by heating.
most at my track run them nearly year round even in winter at night. 10 deg cel air temps.

I guess no one is using them on carpet.

I tried the 32s on carpet thinking they would be similar to Jaco Blue or Sweep QTS32. They didn't have the level of grip and the car slid around more.

28s may be better but I didn't have any to test at the time.

I ran the 28s on a local carpet track very similar to sorex 28s

Wait until you try some Jaco's from the Snowbirds batch.... dial in max dual-rate and your car might steer....
