The new rules on the USVTA site allow any treaded tires, belted or non-belted.

For the Series, the Solaris tires are also legal

Yeah Carl like Mooby said yes you can use them I think I will be using X-patterns the next race myself. With the Solaris tires hard to locate and they are really not any faster I will stick with the HPI tires.

What class are you going to run? GT or 17.5? I'm sure I can find a set of tires if you need them.
