It is highly recommended (for low to medium traction conditions) that you trim the inserts to make them a little smaller so that the tire does not have such a hard feel.
A couple very popular ways of making inserts softer is to either punch holes in the inserts or to turn the insert inside out and trim the inner ridges/flutes down a little. It is recommended that you trim little sections at a time and put the insert in the tire and the tire back on the wheel and check the firmness until you have achieved the desired feel.
These Tires come in three different compounds:
- Green: Super Soft
- White: Clay
- Yellow: Soft
