Sounds like if your going through six tires a year a used rim from ebay with a good street tire on it would pay for itself pretty quick really.

I like the 2 rim idea. thats actually what I was planning to do. Run a Pilot Power on the street rim and a U-Soft of HookUp on the drag rim. for now its prolly just gonna be U-Soft for the do everything rim, but we shall see!!

Anybody looking for a good back rim for tire swapping, I have a mint one off of a gen 1 for sale. 160 shipped in the US. Comes with spacers, and complete drive hub. I think I even have the rear brake rotor that I could include. The drive hub would help with quick gearing changes as you could have a different sprocket allready mounted up, and just swap the hub. Let me know if interested. Thanks. Mike.
