    Not a bad looking tread pattern....

    Press releases by their very nature tend to run-ahead of actual product availability by weeks or sometimes months. I wouldn't be surprised that there's nothing else to read about these tires yet, because they may not even be in production yet, let alone sitting on a retailers shelves.

    As with any "new" product, you can either be the guinea pig and try it first....or wait patiently for a magazine (or CK5) review to decide if it's worth spending your own money on.


    :D
