Does anyone know where to find a Kelly tire chart that lists their tire tires in order of softness/firmness by the label color? I have tried a couple different colors here lately (mostly yellow and blue) but would really like a breakdown in compound order with reference to the label color. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Tyre Hardness Guide

Hard (Firm)----------------------------- Soft (Grippy)

Yellow - Black - Orange - Green - Tan - Blue - Red


Don't know if this still applies (from a 1997 spreadsheet on my PC) :)

Yeah, that is a little dated as there are about double the color options now. I appreciate the reply and start however.

I was sitting back, waiting, and hoping someone would fill in the remaining gaps in the chart. :blink:

Only Kelly knows, and he ain't talkin'. Same as AMSRA Rules, he makes 'em up as he goes.

Hershman is the only person on the planet who has comms with him. Try PMing Hershman and begging for help. :)

Thought I remember seeing every color in the rainbow lined up behind the counter according to hardness at the 2011 Scale Nats. Maybe Roger or crew can shine a little light on the subject. :)

It would be much easier to just switch to a known tire, like Koford, JK, Alpha, Jet, Parma, etc.

SRT makes all the Kelly Tires.. . but all the last few I've got each tube is very inconsistent... might wanna check the tire not just the color of labels... :unsure:
