Default Tire problems need help

I just discovered I was having a tire problem. Ive been running premount Take-off 27's. Stock motor on carpet. I have 2 sets I have been using one premount set and one set I mounted on some GS rims Both about a month old.. Both sets feel soft like the insert has shrunken. Tire has a loose skin feel to it. I have been cleaning them with lighter fluid and using Jack The Gripper. Does anyone know what caused this? I checked other tires at the track and none of them feel like mine do. 99 percent of the guys run the premount 27's. and use the same cleaner as I do.

I have a set that feels like that too. My only real complaint about the TakeOffs are teh cheap rims lol. I have broken 3 so far and at least 1 person breaks one every weekend. Not from hitting things but just be racing and one of the centers will break. Leaves the hex part on the hub and the hole in the rim is about the size of a quarter.

It is normal for the air gap to increase slightly in a set of mounted tires after a few runs.

Make sure the Rims have at least one 1/16" vent hole with two being preferable.
