To avoid the same issue and the expenses we are using specific tire and insert for our national races

that is a problem i agree
But we got round that by spec premounts for every one

ie ;;V-Tech 24r or sorex 28r or cs22 all premounts which is very popular over here

BUT
That doesn`t stop some arse`s that have a `NEW` set every run at the big meets ,because they have more money & no family`s to run
