But I don't smoke a pipe!  ;-)

I believe tread design can impact tramlining as well.  The SP8000's
have a much blockier tread pattern that the SP5000's.  I think the
main contributor are the longitudinal grooves.  If they are wide and
straight, then you have more edge area that can cause tramlining.

Guess I need to buy some wheel locks for those 16's now...
