Re: yet another tire info request...

Hairy green toads from Mars made Linus D. Toy say:

I loved the Comp T/A VR4s I ran the last two years. Got 40K out of them,
and they were great tires. The new HR4-2's are supposed to incorporate
a lot of the technology from the V's into them. I almost went with them
last month when I changed. I ended up with the D60A2s, and we've been
very happy together. Except: I hit a good size pothole, and one of my
tires burst about two weeks later from the damage. I run 38 lbs, and I
don't think this was enough of a pothole to be reasonable to blow a tire.

Michelin - Yecchhh. Would never have them. You're right: old technology,
big advertising, big $$$.

Pirelli - Ask Mike LaRosa about my advice on Pirelli (hint: it rhymes
with mooseless trucking fire).
