Default Re: Smooth treadless tyre to maximise roller contact

Not really applicable here - but DO NOT buy 'Cheng shin' tires for a motorcycle, they're a horrid brand - the knobby ones for dirt bikes are particularly bad. I remember very clearly being pelted with torn-off knobbies in the midst of a turn o_O

I suppose for a bicycle they'd be fine, especially the street versions... but still, ya get what you pay for. Remember - your tires are the only thing making contact with the road, as some of us are going 30mph or so (about the same speed I ripped my dirtbike's tires apart) they're somewhat important lol
