saw the super soft grid irons run on a cold indoor clay track, seemed to do well... about as good as the pink taper pin which is the tire of choice for the track

This is the tire to be on. It lasts and lasts. Super softs are the bomb! Soft is the new hard tire.

I have to agree about the supersofts. I mounted up a set of Ibeams and they work very well. Unfortunately the track I run on is all indoor clay but its loose and really sticks to the tires so anything smaller than i beams the tire turns into slicks as they are caked with mud, but the supersoft tires are great.

I feel the Citi's dont last long enough VS the I-beams...the top row is gone pretty quick (pending the dirt) and then your left with a very Flat lug that is really only good for blue grooveish condition's.

I feel the same way after running two sets of Citys, one set of I-beams (all soft), and one set of City/I-beams.

If your track is that abrasive then you possibly need mediums.

As Tech5 stated the Super Soft will be the tire to have where the softs rained supreme. (Until the weather warms back up around 80*)

soft tires when cold get hard lmao...

thats why you run m2 in the hot and when it gets cold drop to m3

the rubber gets a little more stiff the colder it gets.

The track we run on is hard packed moist with lite dust(indoor). I ran a set of ss grid irons last weekend and the things were friggin glued to the track! This is where we normally struggle for traction but they felt amazing. They were twice as good as a m3 caliber. I have some blue jconcept 7's that will be here tomorrow and I hear there the cats meow! We'll see. btw all these are for truggy.

I just use reino's tire conditioner. softens the rubber for more grip and longer wear. great stuff.
