I am a first year SS dirt racer. I would like any opinions on what type of tires to run. What are cheapest? What are best? What are most durable? etc. I have heard good things about the cooper cobra gts. What have your experiences told you? Thanks for the help!

cooper seem to be the best. i have ran them for three yrs and really abused them. started with 4 new and finally trashed two of them this yr. the coopers stick to the track very good and clean out good(wait till your behind someone with them). also you might be able to pick up some takeoffs from a mod. never tried them though.

I run star fire, there a real good hard tread and they stick to the track great. this yr I've moved over to another brand tire i've ran and that winston winners there a really great tread. i bought my first set of star fire 3 yrs ago and still got them only a few nic's in the tread. star fire's cost $40. more down here but i don't know bout where you live.
