Jim Butler recommended SFT lobes for me from the XTQ series - also with the lifters with the pee-hole. I haven’t seen/heard these discussed on these boards - might be worth looking into? FWIW

That is waaay too much weight. Either the tires have been stored/stacked incorrectly or the wheels may be buckled/kinked. I’d check dynamic balance to see how true the wheels run. Turning the tire on...
