That's a good starting point, but depending on how grippy the astro is, you might be better with non-cut staggers.

Also, to complicate things a little more... Some astro tracks work well with Mini Pins, where others demand that you use Mini Spikes otherwise you will have zero grip. It depends on the individual track and the amount of grip it has.

If you know which track you will be racing at its probably worth asking specifically for that track as a regular on here will know best.

If you are not sure though then Mini Spikes are the safe option as they should work just about anywhere wherea s Mini Pins may not....
