Big favor to ask, would anyone who lives near Hobbytown be able to pick me up a set of USGT tires? I will be there Sunday, just hoping they don't sell out of them by then.
if not, I'll check with them Saturday if they still have some. Thanks guys.

I would get them for you but im out in los Angeles area. I actually have a set of new balanced usgt tires if you would like to get them off of me. Trust me you will want these balanced. I have the ones in black spoked color.
$35 ready to go with the seam sanded down. I can see as of right now they only have 2 left in stock. If you do go by sat and they don't have any, don't worry i have new sets in the package unbalanced you can get from me for $28

Thanks Chris I'll bring extra cash when I see you Sunday. Im using a set of balloons right now, but different age so there is a difference front/rear. I had a hard time with these last race in San Marcos.
I do balance my tires as well and remove the center seam so no worries bro. Thanks again.
