I've tried Atomic, Kyosho and PN tires. PN makes some decent tires but I have always preferred Kyosho tires. 30 fronts and 20 rears. Either radial or slicks. I find the radial tires become slicks very quickly anyways with hard driving :) The atomic tires have silicone in their compound so I don't use them. My local track bans tires with silicone since we run on RCP. You might want to check with your track about this. If you are running on your own RCP track, be aware that running silicone tires will make it slipperier with time and there is no way to get the silicone out later that I am aware of.

And always use tire tape!

Kyosho 20 and 30 tires are by far inferior to the new KS compound by PN in a competitive race environment. Also KS tires provide the longest life.
