I run Diamond backs with no problems. If your having a problem rolling the tire off the bead, I doubt simply putting used tires of a different brand are going to solve your problems. What kind of tire pressures are you running? Which tires are having problems, front or rear?

MMMMM..... Their right, don't run tubes unless you have to. They create a lot of heat in the tire, wear over time etc. But I do run a tube in the RF. My left sides are between 15psi and 17psi, rf is between 18and 20 psi and rr is about 18. It seems to me that you've got plenty of air pressure there. What wheels are you using, and how much does the car weigh?

well, I don't know what to tell you really. I have a 2300 lb car and I would think that your pressures would be more than enough. What are your spring rates and right side offsets?

By the way, like I said, no matter what is causing your prob, espically with that high of tire pressure, I doubt simply switching tire brand is going to solve your prob.
