Buff Sand Tires Around San Diego And Cost ?

Recommended Posts

Two years ago at the SSSS the Asa raffle car had buffed 35"

Front tires and I thought that was a great idea.

So any buff options in SD area?

Don't mean to hi-jack I've been thinking of buffing my baja pros also. Question for guys that have done this how do they perform?

Dropped them off, got a estimate. Of 15-20$ per tire.

Also two weeks out. I'll post up after pics

Do they have to be on rims when you have them shaved/buffed?

Anyone know of anyone here in the central valley that does this? Or a place that would do them while you wait If I did happen to be in LA area?  I could take a set along to have done if going down there, But I'd want to have them done while I waited, or I'd have to pay shipping or drive back down  to get them, which aint happening.

So I got them back unshaved. 

They said remove the cups and they will try again. 

The cups will hurt the machine.

What do you mean by cups or are they paddle tires?

I handed park house an old set of paddles I wanted shaved down. They said sorry please remove the (paddle or cup or scoop) because the machine will not handle the huge difference from the surface of the carcass.

My 35" Baja Pros are shaved.

Local place here in Mesa did it back in 2004 when my car was built.

I love them.

Turn well, don't throw up a bunch of sand, super light.

1.) better brakeing

2.) better ride

3.) less potential for digging the front

4.) personality it's to try out this concept 

if money was easier (next few seasons it will be)

I would use a different tire or buy the biggest razor masters made. 

Im on a budget but in a few seasons these tire will be upgraded.
