I believe that the most popular tire to use are Blizzaks. It seems to be what's on most peoples car, though not on ours. We're running Yokohamas. If it's going to be slushy, its a good idea to have a set of Wal-Mart specials (aka. crappy winter tires with a blocky tread). This is just a rough idea though, since this is only our second year, and I think it must take a lifetime of experience to get the tire game right for ice racing. What works in the morning could be dog slow by the afternoon, and I can never explain why. :mad:
