The e-07 really seems to be the best and unique choice for someone looking for an aggressive tire that out lasts a full dot knobby.

Are those tires even labeled DOT for US resellers?
That would be a HUGE concern for a company like TT.
Sounds like Mitas will have a US distributor up and running soon enough.
