    I thought the biggest they went was 38" or so? At any rate they all suck...unless you groove the ever loving Jesus out of them. :p:

    Yup, 38 is as big as they come. Null point as they all suck.

    Unless they're free, you're on welfare, and they come with a free filet mignon dinner, I wouldn't get them - period, at all, end of story. Spend the money on a better tire. Or groove about 30 lbs of rubber outta 'em, but by then they're really be undependable.

    They're called Thornturds for a reason.... :rolleyes: ;)
