    Thumbs up THE DEFINITIVE TYRE CHOICE THREAD...

    Hi all.

    Thought it might be worth starting a centralised thread for us all to share real-road experiences with the various tyre options available to us. I am looking for a new set at the moment and would find this info useful, as I'm sure would others.

    Copy and paste the form below to keep the thread clean and easy to use.
    .
