Tires?

Steve - If you don't mind me digging up bones and asking.... What tires were you running on these bikes?

Looks like the ones on your bike may be Pirelli Scorpion A/T's, but can't identify the ones on the right. Looking to get a "milder" tire for my bike and am looking for suggestions.

Thanks!

RE: Tires?

How was the wear on them? You have any preference on the Shinkos vs. the Pirellis?

Thank you for the info!
