why yellow wolf runs car tires

first let me say I would NOT run a car tire on anything more sporty than a wing,jmho and really is just that

folks will disagree with the following but they are wrong,uninformed or have not tested the right tires,again jmho

1-and most important is it has more grip than any bike tire for the wing!at any speed in the dry,trust me im very sure on this!!

2-wet grip is way way better!!

3- tire life for the way I ride is a tad longer

4-feel,the tire I run and the air pressure I use you are hard pressed to feel any difference

5-the tire does not ride up and rail on its edge it squats at the edge as the pic shows

6- a car tire runs 20-40 degrees cooler than a bike tire

tire is a falken non run flat 195/55-16

I think they car tires are great idea's in some applications, Valks, Wings, R3s, Vmax big powerful HEAVY bikes....motorcycle tires seem to be ...not up to par.....for the larger end of the spectrum. Moreso if you slab a lot.

Not getting me to put one on my Super Duke, but if I had a Rocket (which I've flirted with more than one) it would likely be darkside.

The Darkside Debate will continue for all eternity, just as oil and battery threads will.

YW, OTOH, has proven himself and needn't take any hoo-ha from pretenders...

I went to the darkside on my V-strom, a winter experiment, successful beyond my wildest imagination, but the other 3 seasons, I am back to a conventional bike tire

I don't think anybody really cares what tires you run YW. It's just a game, troll and trolled.
Now, as to your choice to ride a big yellow pig, that has me .

Why'd you switch back? Seems like most darksiders either love it and stay or hate it. You love it but still went back?
