tire usage question
when do you use a tires with really small "nubs" (i.e. Bow-Ties)? How about using tires with tall "nubs" (i.e. ProLine Dirt Paws or Trac-Ta-Gators)?
what does "loamy" mean? I've heard it used when describing track conditions.
You use smaller nubs when the track has very little loose dirt on it or the track gets so hard that you start to see a black groove in the surface (blue groove it is sometimes called).
