you just have to live with the fact of the control tire and the rest is up to adjusting your car. this makes it cheaper for all.
I know what you mean, but unfortunately, things turn out to be different. It makes it cheaper for you as long as all tires are almost the same. In fact, we had to buy about ten complete sets and put them on a scale to get equal sets. I had tires that were almost 2 gramms heavier than other in the same set. So what did the top guys do? They bought at least twenty sets...
