Hey I'm considering a couple pair of tires that are on sale, which 2 or 3 would you recommend? I know it depends on the track, but I'm new at racing and want a good baseline for tires. Any particular foam I should get for them?
Thanks

So I went to the Hobby Pro HK site first and found these:

LPR foams

Can't find them on the USA site. Are they available from HP USA? Been looking for LPR foams for a while now, getting rare.

No, medium flex is like medium from AKA or M2 from Proline. Ultra Flex is like M3 or soft, VP has no version of a super soft tire

No, you answered my question right. I was wondering which tires from the link that are on the blow out sale would you recommend?

I cant recommend a tire without knowing your track, but the best choices of tires from VP pro are Axeman, Blades, Turbo Traxx and Grips in no particular order. If you are not racing competitively than its always nice to get some cheap tires for whatever you want to use them for.
