Main track , straight up Sand tire.
Vet track, any mid-soft tire.

I find the track has a super hard base. Dunlop M3S for me.

Can't go wrong with Dunlop MX3S's or Pirelli MX32's...Make sure you have extra tubes if you're currently running thin OE ones! Practice days are harder-packed than race days (especially late Thursday afternoons); The track crew does an excellent job on race weekends, by the way


PS: Glen *Helen

Um, ya Matt. ive seen you ride before.... As slow as you go I don't think it matters if there is a sand paddle or racing slick on the back. a fresh knobby will make no difference for the likes of you. For your weight class, id focus more on spending money on suspension that can hold a rhinoceros.

Dunlop MX3S or Pirelli MX32. Bridgestone 404 was always my favorite if you can find one. The track does have a hard base like Joe said.

racer112, thanks for the tip. I'm just a little nervous to ride glen helen for the first time. Thought I should ask some locals for a tip or two. ....It reminds me of the first time I rode your mom, things didn't go so well for me. I should have asked all the locals about what set up your mom likes before just diving in.....

Can't go wrong with either the M3S or I personally like the starcross 5 soft. The M3S only last me 3 rides with good feel then I take them off. I have more feel with the starcross soft and they last longer.
