Default Touring Car Tires for Asphalt.

What's your preferred choice for practice and competition?

In the UK it tends to be Sorex 32RY pre-builts, same as the current national tyre.
In Europe it tends to be Ride's, the current Rex34 (as used at the ETS rounds) is very good.

Ride Rex34 or Re32 (if allowed) for training and racing.
Maybe some Ride Re28 for super cold conditions.

Sorex 36 premounts with the red insert. 32s or 28s in the fall when it starts cooling off.

Sorex and Muchmore have been working great for me.

I've run Jaco oranges all summer and they work great!

We've found poor wear properties with Sorex, as of the last year, on asphalt.

Team Powers 34s and the EX series from Solaris are great and seem to last much longer.

My $.02.

Most races only allow the Rex34 in their rules

Sorex 28's and 32's work great on rough bumpy asphalt. Ride 32's and 36's are close, however you can find the Ride tires at a lower cost, preglued...

Rush 36 seems to be the go to out here, with REX34, Sorex, and Panaracers occasionally getting a look in.

Rush 36's are pretty decent too not quite as grippy but last a bit longer. The only negative I have seen is a lot more variability in the quality of the rim compared with schumarcher rims which sorex premounts are commonly available with.
