Tyres lads.....what's the best value, but good intermediate tyres without busting the bank!
Pmt tyres seem popular in the race seen but very pricey
In the race scene tires are your way to gaining ground with a cutting edge line....You get what you pay for....

Seeings the best of the chinese brands is Quind and they are $26.00 its not too bad paying $80-100 bux for something that gives way more bite to the track....

Theres ways to take the cheapie tires and spray them with chemicals to soften the rubber too.................

You mix 65% VHT to 35% MEK ,,,spray the tires down and cover them in plastic for an hour and preheat tires with a heatgun after removing and wiping down with a rag.....pull them out 1/2 hour before race time... dont roll tires on the pavement...carry bike to the line....

Put inner tubes inside too so you can adjust air pressure.............

A few months ago I was on Vee Rubber website looking at the motorcycle and quad tires....Don't recall seeing anymore tires that fit a pocketbike....

In a week there's an 80's era bike race and I was going to bring my 89 CBR600 but found out seeings it has 2003 954 inverted front forks,GSXR750 front rim and 2004 CBR600 tail mod I wasn't allowed to race it...LOL...The engine is built to AMA specs...

I think Vee phased the pocketbike tires out of production...MidSouth only sells PMT I beleive Blata.com too....Polini brand is limited to 5"rim models I beleive too..

Sava maybe worth tracking down as Chrisi said....

Lately companies have been given cease operations order along with that comes a gag order to not talk about it and cause public outcry....

Just think of a day where tuner Companies like SCT and Diablo won't be around and up to their eyeballs in litigation...

What's a better way to getting rid of racing other than making companies that sell and supply stop altogether or face steep penalties...

That's all I'm allowed to say....lol
