Default Best tires for these conditions?

mostly blacktop/asphalt racing, i assume thers some pebbels, and usually very tight turns at full speed sending my ntc3 spinning..

your thoughts? the stock tires that came with it fall off with the highspeed cornering, i hope thats not the case with the pre-glued foams i'm thnking of buying

Did you glue your tires on? Usually the kit tires are too hard for racing. Not enough grip. Foams would work as long as the surface isn't too dusty. Sorex or take offs are the most popular rubber tire locally.

You can also check out Twister Tires. Great traction and wear at a great low price.

If it is parking lot racing you are talking about, I believe you wanted tire with more rubber 'packed' in the foaming process. I know speedmind makes that kind which resist more on wear (and chunking since they are harder). On permanent track, those too much rubber packed does not perform well and inconsistent in my opinion. And you should know, only where the tires manufactured from that differentiate its final selling price. The foams are all coming from the same source

Default Well!

I do believe the question was, what is the best tire for these conditions? I`m just offering some friendly advice and oppinion, not trying to be nasty.
