Default Matrix tire questions

Would anybody run matrix tires for the right price?

1. What is the right price for sedan and 1/8 for you to switch?
2. Carbon or regular weights?
3. Does it really a big deal to not have light weight wheels?

Love the matrix carbon on kyosho style rims. 8 to 9 bucks would be great, but it's the shipping that takes it over the top.

I ran these tires the last race weekend on my nitro tourer and was really impressed. used about 2 sets in practice and about 3 sets on the race day. Most important thing was all the tires i used felt consistent pair to pair.

And the first time i finished the half hour main with tires left.

The carbon kyosho style rim is the one to have.
