A pity they had to use pictures of car tyres to talk about mt, otherwise it is not too bad.

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.

I have a specific question that this august group may be able to answer.

Firstly, speed rating. 168 mph +. Speed rating means exactly how fast does this tire run? Is there not a limit?

Secondly, regarding land speed tire for 200 mph + . ( They are featherlight treadless.)

Goodyear has a dragster front 17 inch but the tread is square shouldered, therefor ineligible to pass tech inspection.

Hoosier has a similar tire which pass visual inspection. Does the m/c rim set the bead adequately?

Seasons greetings.
