You clearly don't have your suspension set up properly. Its a well known fact that the Sweep's last longer on wear than any other tire out there. Unless you don't have any idea how to tune a suspension. Maybe I'll get Marcus Williams to chime in here.

This is True.

They are really heavy and throw the handling off in a bad way, kind of like a pendulum.
