Default Tyre choice for sc5m on Astro

Hi guys looking for advice Im keen to give short course a try. I've never done it before , what tyres work well on Astro for short course ? I have the usual buggy tyres . The wheels are they the same dimension as buggy wheels as I know they are hex's
I'm looking for wet tyres and dry tyres I beleave hard inserts are also used
Really appreciate any info

The wheels are a different size to buggys.

For rear tyres in the wet most use Schumacher spirals, with mini pins in when really dry. Between the to its personal preference I generally use dboots or pinpoints.

For the front I tend to use the ae kit tyres from the sc10, but most people use worn tyre they have previously used on the rear.

Hope this helps.

You need sct specific tyres.
These are my tyres of choice in, there is others but as a starting point:
Front fastrax course kings t1 compound with 2 inner and 2 outer rows cut with the sad fast ran insert
Rear Schumacher minis pikes in yellow compound, and tend to use a proline closed cell insert
The above work well on any type of astronomy I my experience. Sone tracks benefit from a pin type tyre but the above works OK there still.
Front Schumacher stagger rib in silver, with a normal foam insert
Rear Schumacher spiral in silver with a normal insert

Dboots a compound multi bytes can be used instead of yellow minis pikes and last verythromycin well.
Doors b compound multi bytes is a very good intermediate/damp tyre.

Have you got a particular track in mind?

Oh wow so there is a lot more into it I've been buggy racing for a while now and a few guys fancied giving sct a go. We are based up in the highlands so wet a lot of time or low pressure weather so normally low or med conditions . But it's just great to get a base to go from as although it's the same as buggy racing there are different things to find out
I really appreciate all your replays and advice
