Just looking at my tire options for the year.I have run sweep,j concepts,aka,pro line vp pro and losi.Unfortunatly money is tight and i have decided to run sweep or anything i can get on sale.Is there a brand of tire that is less expensive that i am not aware of or a store that will do multiple set discounts.Thanks

i just run aka i
here in australia as they work real well in any conditions the problem with racing is that there is no point racing if your tyres dont grip up ?

You're probably already running the tires with the best price, I have been running a few sets of sweep tires and they work great and they are a lot cheaper than other brands

This is my recommendation:


http://www.raceaka.com/Factory-Seconds_c_52.html

I've run four sets of these so far, and haven't had any issues. There's a disclaimer saying they may need to be reglued, but I haven't had that problem. Can't beat the price, plus they are the EVO's.

if you are looking for a cheaper priced and awesome tires. try vp tires and beta. I ran the betas this weekend and they phenominal. the dual rate foam are sweet. for beats you can get them with the dual rate foam for 18.00 set unmounted. and premounts are coming. and vp tires you can get them even cheaper
