by worn out, do you mean they're so thin that they're about to really wear out, or worn out as in they have no grip anymore?

Can you get a picture of them?

I've never heard of stock tires wearing out in 2 weeks, not even running on concrete or asphalt. I ran my car every day for almost 6 months and still didn't wear through the stock tires, running mostly on concrete and outdoor tennis courts.

If they're not getting any grip, this doesn't mean they're worn out, clean them off with some denatured alcohol or something like that.

Picture would help alot though ;)

rcfreak69, what kind of surface do you mostly run on, so we can make a recommendation. You say carpet, but do you mean Ozite, or carpet in a house/office? Are you racing, or just bashing? See also:
