pretty sure this has been covered in several darkside threads over the years but the assumption that a mc tire is a softer compound than a a car tire is merely a misconeption... in general car tires are of a softer compound !

I was wondering how long it would take for that comment to be posted. I believe that if I said that it was daylight outside my window someone would say Nope, it's night time.

If you are going to critique someone else's thoughts at least spell the words correctly. The word is M I S C O N C E P T I O N, Not misconeption
