Hi Dave,

I have tested a few brands. MJK, Paul Gage, Dart, and a couple of others. Out of those Gage tyres worked best on our tracks. This year there are cars with Tassie tyres and they seem to be very good.

I have not tried Ortmans or Penelope Pitlane tyres. Maybe someone else has some info or comparisons on them.

Dave the MJK narrow tyres that I tested we're too hard.
I have tested most of them.
PG and Tassie are rge best of the Eurethanes IMO. I could not get Ortmans to work well on most Tracks, even in the US.
PPL rubber are also very good and perform about the same on most tacks as the two good eurethanes.
