Recomended tire setup for stunting

What type of tires (front/rear) should I use for all around stunting? i.e. slow wheelies, fast wheelies, rolling burnouts, stoppies, etc.

Inflation pressures, brands/model, hard front/soft rear, soft front/hard rear, all soft, or all hard?

Stay on topic please.

Race takeoffs! And I know just where you can get more tires than you can burn up.

Werd. Let these guys burn up the edges and you get to burn up the middle for a huge discount. Don't worry about rubber compound too much. You'r not looking to maximize your grip or tire life, so it's somewhat irrelevant. Worry more about tire pressure. I know the stunt guys run their pressure low when stunting alot. This gives the tire more "flat" area and improves the balance of the bike while up on one. I forget what tire pressure they usually run, but someone will chime in. Ask NickIF on this board what tire pressure he ran.

Rave take-offs... cheap or free. I've heard of people running as low as 10 psi. I have pics where the person's nearly on the rim on a wheelie. Where is Dixon? Maybe we could meet up sometime... I'm no stunter but I know a lot of the physics and feelings and may be able to help. I can also shoot to show you where you are and can hook you up with some great pro's to give you pointers.

Is this for parking lot only, or for a bike that you will use to commute too? You don't wanna go to low if it's the latter....

I've seen guys ride to the lots with that type of pressure but I wouldn't personally recommend it... although it is a really nice squidly way to get rid of the chicken strips if you can't lean the bike. LOL

Other option is trucking it or tossing a pump (foot or compressor) in a back-pack.

Drive west to the middle of the state (about 45min south of Rockford), and you will find Dixon. It's a friendly town (as long as your not on a bike) in the middle of nowhere.

I need to fix my stunt bike before I can ride it up there. I also am wondering if the fuzz is going to give me a hard time running race tires instead of DOT. Around hear the coppers are to dumb to notice.
