Piece of mind for the increased durability. Used ones could have some wear and tear from use, which is not that hard to do if you're not careful with your tire irons. Inner tube won't last forever...

Mine was not the RC version but my friend's was and his tire didn't last long either (also tubliss). I ripped knobs off down to the carcass.
