    Rally VXL or Ken Block tires on asphalt?

    I bought a Kawasaki Rally VXL a few months ago and the tires are starting to wear. I was wondering if the Rally VXL tires are better for drifting on asphalt than the KB/Fiesta/Mustang tires.
    How does the grip, directional control, and tire life compare?

    Do you have pictures of the Kawasaki Rally tires?
    I would think they would be the exact same as any of the KB/Fiesta/Mustang tires.

    This is what I am using... but they are not for drifting; they grip too well.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    What I ment was that I have the KB tires, and I wondered what the difference between them and the BFgoodrich was. I use them for drifting.

    Probably nothing but a sticker... but I have not held the BFG's in my hands.

    Thanks. Does anyone know if the grooves in it make any difference?

    Do you have a link to the tire??
    I think we may be talking about two different things here... lol
    The tires I am speaking of are all slicks... even the BFG.

    I see... I have seen the same tire, but it was a slick.

    The material felt the same to me... the grooves probably add a little traction, but not a whole lot -just from the way they are designed.

    hard slick tires will have a harder time to match the alsphalt pattern therfore the bfgoodrich one with have a bit more grip
    All I need now is to set a new lap record.
