    Why not just do shinko? Same tread, $20 less.

    caught me. no 3.25 avail, and they're $10 less. Guess it's been a while since I ordered one.

    Yah that's how it is.
    The 3.25 ia a nicer width for the road IMHO.
    Cushy.

    I run it around 24 psi on gravel fully loaded and all the steering skate goes away.

    Works good in the woods too.
