    Smile Bow-Tie Tire Questions

    I'm gonna be getting pro line bow-tie tires for my slash and I see they come in M2 and M3. Which one is better and which one is harder or softer?

    (Which one is better I guess is based on your track conditions).

    M3 is the softer of the 2.

    So does that mean M2 might be better for racing?

    Actually M3s would be better for racing 'cause they're softer, but you'll also be replacing them more often. So M2s are good grip and good lifespan.

    M2 is bettery for race track, softer but wear out fast.
    M3 is bettery for bashing around.

    The M3's will work better for racing as they are softer and offer much better grip.

    The M2's are harder and will last longer but offer less grip.

    You both completely disagree. Who should I believe?
