Default AKA Truggy Tires?

Just opened a new set of AKA city blocks and I beam premounts and was surprised to find they are not vented on the tire or the wheel. Are they meant to be run unvented? I prefer to vent my tires on the tread and not the wheel since the foams stay cleaner and last longer. Anyone have any thoughts or knowledge of the unvented AKA's

Look at them again real close. The vent holes in the tires are along the center treads and sometimes very hard to spot. There should be 2 in each tire, about 180 degress apart. All of mine have come with vent holes so far without exception.

+1 all the premounts are vented in the center of the tire. I agree hard to spot but it is there.

Hey...easy on the "geezer" speak there When you get to the point that you can't see your vehicle running down the back straightaway and you're steering by the sound of where you think the engine is...THEN you're eligible for the Geezer Race Class!

Glad we could help you out! They are awesome tires for sure!!
