They are also really agressive and traction was never an issue. They did however feel twitchy and terrible for about 500 km.

Oh yeah and no punctures to speak of.

Just my 2 cents.

I like the look of that tire! I did a quick search for Mefo dealers in Canada and it appears that only the 130/80-17 is available in the Stone Master here. Hopefully I can track down another dealer or 2.
