I finally went to the dark side with a altamax hp 195-65-15 tire. I had it mounted yesterday and reinstalled on my bike. I took about a 30mile ride and loved it. I've spent the last 2 seasons reading all the pros/cons and finally decided the only way to find out is to try for myself. i think i would have to say it's different. i do notice that it does grab the cracks in the road alittle more than a bike tire but i also have 45psi in the tire right now for the 500 mile break in. cornering it feels about same as the original Dunlop i had been running. hopefully this weekend i can get out for a longer ride. i will post more then.
