The EnTIRE Truth

Tire Truth Logo

It’s all about tires!  That was the motive for publishing the “EnTIRE Truth” series.  Over the years, the article would be written by three different individuals well known in the karting industry: Eric Rendleman of Eric Rendleman Performance, Brad Gerrels of Southern Express Kart Shop / Falcon Racing Chassis, and Jon Keister of Keister Karting Products.  Brad Gerrels wrote his final article for the series in November 2012.  A year later, we tried to revive the series with Jon Keister, but we ultimately decided that there was little left to write about.  Please enjoy this detailed and comprehensive series on cutting, prepping, and maintaining tires.
