    ****Tire ??, Junior 2 4 cycle small concrete oval.****

    ***HELP***

    Only raced dirt prior, what's a general purpose tire to run on the concrete mentioned above.

    Tire make and basic compound would be helpful !!

    Thatís a tough one, never ran concrete outdoors lol. Yellow Vegas & Hoosier A-40s are the fastest Iíve seen around here on asphalt.

    If you gotta buy tires just to try this out I doubt anyone is going to know or give out exactly what is best for this outdoor concrete track, I would buy what I know I need to run at another track I plan to race, If you intend to race the outdoor concrete a few times your best bet is to reach out to someone already racing there, with NO additional info If I were going to buy tires only for there I'd try Vega Yellows feeling I had a 50% shot at it.

    Good Luck !!

    Thanx RP,
    I intend to go watch a hopefully scheduled practice and see what I can pick there.

    Vega Yellows or Hoosiers A40s would be your best bet I am thinking.
    If there are any specific questions we can help you with about our tire or prep program, please feel free to contact us at the shop.
