Default Street + rallyx tire

I'm picking a new set of tires for my non-track/autox set of wheels.

So, if daily drive + autox/track = summer tire, which tire is daily drive + rallyx? All seasons?

BTW, my impression is that rallyx isn't that bad on your tires as the speed and traction is so low and the dirty is "soft", unlike the high cornering loads of an autox.

I'm not worrying about the tires being competitive in rallyx, I just don't want them to be a frustrating liability.

Any snow?

I'm currently running BFG KDW2's and they tear it up in the dirt. But if you look at their tread pattern, its no surprise. They're an ultra high performance summer tire and they do just as good offroad as they do on.

Yeah... this set has to be able to do snow without being dangerous, so no summer tires for me on this set. The other set is the summer tire set.

No summer tires allowed in rallycross anyway.

Hrm looks like they are outlawed in my region, but not across the SCCA.

I used Nokian Hakka 2's (not studded) as my daily drivers for two years. Not a bad tire considering they are snow tires. They are light and responsive. Great on gravel, mud and snow. Without studs you have to watch for ice.

I now use them as rallyX tires. Very good, but as with all street tires they are prone to being pulled off the rim under heavy cornering. Tubes help in that regard.
