^^ agreed, it is crazy how EZ it is to change a tire when the wheel weighs < 13 lbs.

By the way, these Hercules tires are dreadful but they still have 6/32nds tread so I have to wear them out as much as possible before I replace them.

Continental ExtremeContact DWS to follow these bastards.

I haven't tried those tires (Continental ExtremeContact DWS) so I cant compare them to what I have but you might want to check out the General Tire G-Max AS-03's I have em and so far I cant complain they grip really well in dry and wet weather but have yet to test them in winter conditions. And thanks for showing these wheels to me I might have to pick up a set for track use.

Ya I wouldn't mind giving them a shot, however, I get all my tires at discount tires because their service is second to none and they don't carry that tire. I am going to give the General Altimax Arctic snow tires a go this winter.
