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 ...no!!!! But what I'm saying is, if ya can't afford the "new hot tire" just stick to want has been working....
