OH oooo... a TIRE thread.

Post by FM-USA »



NO-no, not gonna be one of those, JUST a little info.
Has anyone, or know of someone, who tried this tire, below
pix, on their Wings (or comparable sized bike) front wheel?
It looks like it be noisy until it's broke-in a little.

Looks like it might be a dual sport tire. They come in all different tread styles for on and off road riding, depending on which you want to do more of. They have 80/20 which is for 80% on and 20% off. The one you pictured there appears to be maybe a 60/40 for more on road than off, but close. I would agree that it might be a bit noisy on road.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey

Yaaa, noisy I fig'd.
I ride 365 and winters I'm good to 4-6 inches. That tire could work.
