Default Re: Squidbait

I have to wonder about the new tire colors and their stability over the long term. Carbon black is the standard "stabilizer" to prevent ozone and UV from causing tires to deteriorate, get hard, crack, lose grip, etc. Problem is, once you get enough carbon black in the tire, the tire turns, ahem, black. Of course, if you burn off a set in a month or so, it wouldn't matter.

I haven't seen a fully colored tire yet, but as an import tuner you must have seen the tires with the colored stripes in them (I've seen some ones with bright yellow tread portions on them) and actually I think they look kind of neat, understated but it just adds that little bit of interest. Only on actual high-performance modified cars, though, on a plain 'ol Civic it would smack of poseurism.

Default Effeminate Tires for the Effeminate Rider

Hell even their ad looks like Fisher Price stacking donut toy. What fairy-ass brainchild thought this one up? My wife wants to know if she can buy a pair to match her fingernail polish.

I hate to admit this but I like KPaul like all black but I have a bright yellow 2002 ZX-6R. I hope he dosn't have the same bike.

Oh no. Racing sport bikes through the dirt is not cool. Cruisers outrunning sportbikes is not cool. Kung fu off the back of a Mille is.. kinda cool. But, jumping sport bikes like Metzger is totally dumb.

Default forget the color

What's this Remanufactured stuff?





One of the major problems with our interstate system in Florida is remanufactured truck tires leaving road crocks for MO to run over.



[b] Regardless how many inspections they do I donÂ’t want re-pops on my bike.

They keep mentioning their 225 mph aircraft tires, and I'm certain that has a huge bearing on motorcycle tires. What's the lean angle on a 727, anyhow?

Retreads are perfectly fine for putting down to the local hangout to talk about how extreme you are. Then of course putting home....
