unfortunately we had to go with the TakeOff wheel... this was new for the 07 season as the year before you could choose wheel and insert. The Orion hard/TO medium/CS27 combo works much better. The nylon rims from TakeOff are total crap. If you're lucky enough to get a set of 4 well balanced wheels, they were totally untrue after three or four heats. at least with modified racing.

the advantage to the control tires is that everyone is racing on equal terms ad that you do not need to stockpile different type of tires and combinations.
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...
