i looked at speedtechrc and they didnt mention whether its a pair or a set..

so how would i know how many im buying? geez how do they do business
I think you need to look again at Speedtech's site, most descriptions mention they are in pairs or a set of four, and you can normaly tell from the price anyway. A good pair of tyres will be around $13 and a set of course will be close to double that, with premounted tyres normaly coming in a set of four and costing over $30.

When racing on tarmac I always use Take Off's CS range, they give good grip through out their life, and last well. Occasionaly they have a ribbing problem, I wish they hadn't changed the insirts to the new blue ones, it can also be caused by a bad setup and some wheels are worse than others.

Sorex 36R with HPI blue insert (nitro)
Sorex 36R with HPI green insert (nitro)
Surface type: asphalt

I usually run green insert in the morning and blue insert in the afternoon. Tires wear is very even for I do rotate them after every tank. I am very happy with it. HPI 33R with HPI blue or green insert provides the same grip except I find them wear out faster than Sorex.
