Default HB premounts

this thread is for those that run HB tires, we are seeing if thier is enough interest in having the Beams and the Megagrids offered as premounts.

voice your thoughts.

I've had some issues with HB pre-mounts coming off the wheels. Maybe it was a one time thing but kinda leaves a person with a bitter taste. Would perfer to mount my own with the wheel and foam of my choice but I'm sure alot of folks would prefer mounted.

Just simply too many tires on the market today.

Pre-mount truggy tires might be a hot ticket item.

i like the premounts better, as a slight newbie's advice, i think many just getting into the hobby would buy premounts before anything else. open package slap on truggy and race. i can see where the pros or better driver might like the tuning side of using differnt foams/wheels/...ect, but if you drive like i do and dont like getting fingers stuck together then premounts are the way to go.

I would like to see some truggy tires also!

I love my HB premounts and I always run the HB red foams so I would def. like to see some beam preamounts and megagrids...life is busy enough for some of us and gluing tires is just time consuming

HB tires are great, but the glue job on the premounts suck a big one. Me and a fellow racer have both had a set come un glued during a race. I do like the beams, but I trust my glue jobs more than someone elses. Just my .02

The tires and wheels that I had trouble with were early on. I don't know if there was an issue with a batch or just mine.
I like pre-mounts but I also like the red AKA in the Megabite tire.

+1 on Beams and Gridlock pre-mounts.

Greg, that's surprising, I haven't had a problem in a couple years. You have seen me drive and know that I'm not easy on tires.

I just check them every couple runs.

The new gridlocks may be the ticket at the factory.
