Sidewalls of this tires are not reinforced as much as other high performance street tires. Thats the reason they are a lot lighter than dunlop star specs for example. Iam not trying to scare you. Just my 2 cents
Great so I have new tires all the way around, is it really important just for one event and can I get by or do you guys really think I need another set and if so what do you recommend. I think this will develop into an expensive hobby but agree I WOULD HATE to totally ruin these after just getting them on. AGAIN I AGREE this is turning into a great thread for me and hopefully for some of you guys out there as well.
