Welcome to the Board.

No experience with them, I've heard they are made by Cooper Tire.
Looks like it would work.

might be a while. i'm going to wear out my mc tire first maybe another 2000 mi, i just want to be ready when the time comes, it takes me a long time to make my mind up about anything i always want to make sure i'm making the right decision, the darkside tire option looks great and while i have found plenty of people that say it is a bad idea i have yet to find one person that went darkside and dident like it cheers and getting two summers out of a tire rather than two per summer sounds good too. bounce

You going to wish you had just thrown away those 2000 miles on that MC tire..... Laughing The darkside is that much better! Heck two summers, I am on my 4th coming up with the same tire!!!!


Congrats and welcome to the darkside.

Ps...I have heard that so much from so many people that wished they would have tried it sooner that if every time I heard that I got a dime.....I could retire................. Laughing Laughing Laughing

Well i changed my mind and went with the general ultimax instead. i have only put about 100mi on it so far and i can't say that it handles better but it's not worse and the ride is amazing, it takes a little getting used to but so far i like it. i will know more when i get a couple thousand mi on it.
