DJ,
I think Clyde's talking about for track days. BTW, I know you already have a source, but if you ever need more track take offs for the strip let me know.

i talked to a tomahawk tire dealer in california and he said not a good deal for street bikes. The people who cap the tire do not seperate the tire carcasses into nylon belted and steel belted. Therefore you cannot buy a set of tires and be sure you are getting 2 nylon belted or 2 steel belted. You cannot mix the two on a bike.

i woulsnt mind using retreads either....on an 18 wheeler......you have 17 to spare...but a bike has none to spare

unless you are sure you can bust a wheelie or an endo out of no where and ride it home...dont use retreads...maybe for a show bike, but whats the fun in that???

Those you see lying on the freeway are not always retreads. Remember Firestone/Bridgeston's problem with that?
