I haven't tried any of those yet. Been pretty happy with Matrix so far.

Default Tore preferences

The weather, track conditions and driving style are major factors influencing tire brand choice.
Top choice Contact
I like the traction and durability of Contact (white rim and carbon) best.
Second Matrix
Only makes carbon rim tires. A little squirmy with large diameters. Great on smooth tracks. Soft rubber, chunks easier.
Third choice Xceed
Ok, consistent.

It depends on the track! I switch between Contact and Matrix depending upon the track. However I've found contacts to work the best most places. I've also found the gluing generally better on the contacts than the matrix tyre.

Contacts tend to under steer for me and take a while to come on song.

Matrix are the more aggressive tyre and in my opinion generate the most overall grip.

Hot Race are probably 2nd best, the tyre wear for me is very high with these though.

Xceed are good but tend to take a fair few laps to switch on compared to others.

You will experience different things with tyres though depends how you manipulate/drive the car and your chassis, engine & clutch settings etc, buy a set of each and go compare them that's the only way to do it really!

I would suggest square tyres for sure, far better handling in high speed corners. preferably black of colour.

I myself like Hot Race Tyres. They work well, tire wear is low, large choice of shores and rim type, excellent amount of on hand stock and usually ship same or next day.

Tires depend on the condition of tracks, I would suggest you go to your local track and see what tires drivers like the best, that is the one ....
