Anyone here have any experience with the Goldentyre brand?

Rubbish name for a tyre company but they seem to have a decent selection.

The GT201 looks similar to the Hiedenau K60

They've also got a few interesting knobbly tires.

All I know about golden tyres is this:

Greg Hancock won the 2014 speedway gp world championship on them (only rider in the field using em)

Chris Carr is the main distributor for them in the USA.

Two absolute legends in their respective sports, they can't be too shabby.

I've been watching the "Races to Places" series and Lyndon seems to like them and be pretty honest in his evaluation. I'm not sure on the longevity though. If the series is showing the entire progression, it looks like he's gone through one full set of 201s, a set of whatever the number was of full knobbies, and he's been using the second set of 201s for a bit now. I think he actually has been mixing a 201 back with a knobby up front through some of it as well.

Last episode he showed the 15,000k mark on his odometer, so if he's on set 3 or 4 that's not like amazing longevity, but he's also been doing a good bit of highway speed, so it may be skewed because he's squaring them off faster then they'd wear out with normal varied road riding.

I looked at the options a while back in the US, and the biggest issue looks like limited sizing options.
