I have a set - all I can say is that they weren't sold to me in a Yokomo pack, and they're a pretty hard, low profile, compound

Yokomo uses the same mold for most of its tires. Once you take the label off the package, your guess is as good as the next as to what tire it is.

About the only thing that you can do is distinguish if they are hotlaps or beltecs. Beltecs are belted while hotlaps are not. I could be wrong, it has been a while since I last got Yokomo tires.

XS-4MN came as the included tires in the mr4tc sp kit for me. They are not belted and I think they sucked when I ran em (because they already look worn to crud after only 2 batt packs on asphault)

I've always wondered, what's the difference between a 137, 138, 139, and what's the difference between a M or G or G2 or GS, etc... I've had pretty good results with 139GS's on carpet, but haven't tried any of the other Yok tires. Maybe I would if I knew what the numbers/letters meant

Check out Yokomos web site. It tells you what all the numbers and letters mean.

They're yokomo sprints if they aren't belted. If they are belted I would say they are probably 137F.

they are 138g tires (billy easton used them for one of his yatabe arena setup sheets)

"hotlaps" is the name if Yokomo's tire line.

soft------------>-----------hard

139gs 139g 138g 137f

short wear---->----long wear


at one point they made a 138g worlds tires, this was a while back however and i cannot remmeber if it was harder of softer then the normal 138g.

Oh I remember about the Yok's being the world's spec tire. A little bit of stink made about it . Come on, they were using yokomo tires on yokomo's home track!
Oh well, I think there is always going to be one contraversy about the spec tires at the ifmar istc championship unless they get rid of the spec tires.

I have also been looking for info on crossing these numbers on the tires to yokomo numbers. Does anyone know what these mean.

xt-4mnr
xt-4mnf

So far, alot of different thoughts on the xs-4mn, Any more thoughts from others?

Also, does any one know where to find info on RIDE tires and rims.

Thanks
