Does anyone run zip ties in their tires to help with the mud? Our rules won't allow mud plugs, and I saw this idea in Circle Track a while back. Seems like a logical idea, but wanted to get some opinions on it. Thanks!

i do it on the right side along with some wd40 keeps um clean and there is couple ways to do it some just run a single tie and let the end hang that works but you have to use a butload of um myself i make a loop with one between the holes in the wheel and then put one on the loop so it is loose fitting and can slide then i put that part of the wheel down and cut it off about 1/2 way down the side wall that way it swings and doesn't get in the way when you need to make a quick tire change like it does when you gotta dig thru a bunch of um to get to the lugs

Which size do you use? The really thick ones or the medium size ones?
