Full Bore Tires

Has anyone ever ran these tires before? I know you get what you pay for but I found a new set of these for about $180. My concern is how they will wear. The M-1 is a single compound tire and I want to know if they are sticky enough to maybe run on the track. The M-2 are the dual compound tires made for the track but, I use my bike on the street too and these may wearout too quick.

Here is a link to their home page: CLICK

Any thought would be apprecaited.

I don't see anything on that site about M-2. I see M-1 and M-3. M-3 is not dual compound, but they offer two compounds

My bad, I meant M-3 not M-2. I have run Shinkos which are made by Yokahama and are not bad. I think it is just that the shock of paying as little as $159 for BOTH tires as oppose to $159 for just the front makes me think that they might be junk. I had good results with Shinkos.

Thanks for the feedback.

Seems like they're great for stunting
