I'll use whatever is the known fast tire. That's the beauty of having no sponsorships or brand loyalties!

Shorter answer: My tire bag is full of AKAs, mostly Cityblocks.

TOUREX X300 most of the time, Proline Calibers are next on my list.
I would run basically any tire that works best in the conditions where i'm driving. Tourex have been working really well during the last season in a lot of conditions and they were providing exeptionally long life.

I use them all and even mix them up a bit

Nothing like having a huge tire selection when traveling to a race
