Author Topic:   Need help with asphalt take offs.
posted June 05, 2003 10:23 AM
My track is letting us run the asphalt take offs now, but I don't know too much about them. I do know that a guy running them has won 6 out of 10 features this year so I figured I would give them a try. Also, they cost about $40 dollars less than the tires I've been running, so hopefully I can make them work.

He said that he bought a grooving iron for $60 and he runs them with no tubes. We also have to run 8" wheels and can run a beadlock on the right rear only. Are there different sizes or compounds? If so, what are the best to run? The guy I spoke with didn't elaborate too much when I started asking those questions, go figure...
