Never the less got them on and balanced. Unfortunately work and weather have prevented me from doing anything but riding down to the local shop last weekend (Xmas shopping) where the consensus was "Heidenau? Huh, never heard of 'em" Which makes me think they MUST be good!
Anyway, thanks again!
I read somewhere the Mefo and your brand come out of the same plant. Your front tire will be worthless in mud, but not bad on fast dirt roads. I see them as more of a street tire. But whatever...
