    BikeBandit.com has the 3.50x18 for real cheap. Thinking about using them as a street tracker tire, but want real-life pictures.

    Anyone using them? If so, how do the feel on the street?

    They are 4 ply,so a trials universal rather than a trials competition tyre.It will have a street compound too.They will be ok for your streettracker,but not for going fast around corners.I'm using Dunlop K70's for streettracker use - excellent for street and gravel.Shinko make a K70 copy,but also have a harder carcass and compound....no not as good as the real thing.

    Yeah...not a competition trials tire but a classic old school "trials universal" I think?

    I agree with motu.. you don't want a trials universal on a streettracker. The K70 Dunlops work and I also like Michelin Macadam 50s as they come in lots of sizes and better rubber quality than a K70.
