I'm getting 18k kms/set, who needs a harder compound?

And I offroad a good bit, can't see that a stiffer carcass is needed.

Problem is: Shops are unlikely to stock both. So they'll stock the pricier ones, because there's better profit in them.

Can't see how the consumer makes out in this.

That being said, I really like the tires. You've got a good product, please don't mess it up.
I guess your get up and go needs a coffee. - Drif5
