I'm from the Chicago area and a lot of our parks consist of wood and it gets really dusty and slippery. I have fit TA's and I slide out and die just turning around on quarters. Does anyone have suggestions/preferences of really grippy tires that don't collect alot of dust?

If it's dusty then i don't think tires can really make a difference...

Never tried those, but I'm guessing you should try tires with less smooth surface area (less large tread blocks, more small-pattern)? And the consensus seems to be that tires with colored compounds, e.g. gum, are a bit softer and grippier.

I can't to say TA's haha they were good to be . Fireballs were good , and also a BSD Donnasqueek is good upfront . I like them and FAF tires.

If it's dusty I'd leave it though , just dust the area you sesh at and don't carve like crazy ? Gum tires could help

Have the skatepark mop it. 5 gallons of water and one 2 liter of coke. Sounds ridiculous, but gives the ramps a little grip. Even volunteer to do it? They might hook you up with a cheaper or free session for helping out. Do it weekly. I knew a dude who did that, shortly after he did, he was one of the main guys who worked there, had keys and could ride whenever he wanted.

Kink Lyras. Where I'm from, we ride mostly concrete....with some wooden ramps and gravel. It's windy as hell and dustier than dried up dogshit. Sometimes, my shoes barely want to stick to the park surfaces, but I've yet to slip out while riding my bike with these tires. Before that, I rode Éclat Command tires. Also great for holding air and not killing you.

You could try Aitken tires, or Demolition rig tires. those both are very grippy.
