I'm not complaining on $400 (a season) dollars AT ALL!! (fyi 1:1 dirt latemodels tire bill is about $3000 a season EASY {no wheels}!) but my example i used was for ONE TYPE OF TIRE (i don't know about you but i don't think there is ONE perfect set of tires)

what i'm saying is that racing is expensive, and all these different tires help drive the costs even more. Lets say i show up at my local track with my tire sets (Bowties, Crimefighters (M2 &M3), Gator S and MS, Raptor MS, GRP Jolly ?) and someone else show up with all the V1, V2, V3 and narrow tires then they have a great ability to set up and find PERFECT traction with the track. Now i'm playing catch up just on the TIRE end, let alone the skill end (which i will admit I'm on the bottom-mid end LOL). More options just gives us another reason to drop more coin.

the first step in set-up is tire selection so more options me more things we have to own and drag to the tracks.

To make a small fortune in racing you first must start with a large one.

$400.00 over a season is very low... what I'm saying is just because it is the new tire on the block you don't have to have it. So I don't see why haveing alot of options could turn someone away from the hobby. Do I think we need the wide or narrow tires as options!!!! But what I'm saying is, if ya can't afford the "new hot tire" just stick to want has been working....
