Tires are just Choices. On my truck I prefer Proline. AKA and Jconcepts are top tier as well. This year, I will be primarily running Blockades all summer. I think the LHS here will carry more of the premounted AKA CityBlocks and Ibeams.

The inner foams are mostly standard. Each company have its feel.

Compound - the hotter the track temp the harder tire. I generally run Super Soft in the Spring, Med in the summer and Soft in the fall. Alot of guys run Soft all the time. Offset - TLR uses Standard

You should try to limit the amount of threads you start in such a short period of time. You could group all of these questions into one thread rather than start 5 different threads. But tires I would recommend going to the track you plan to run on and ask what everyone is running. Cause we really don't know what the track you are running on is gonna be like.
