Gonna be a tough decision when the new tire time rolls around. I might have to do the eannie...meannie...minnety...moe thing. I was reading on the Darkside forums that some guys were talking about the tire weight...what difference does this make? Also I read that the Driveguard tire has two different thread patterns on either side of the center line...does this make a difference in mounting...which side goes where?
Sorry for all the questions and thanks to everyone for your input.
Unless you are one of the top 3% aggressive riders the weight of a tire will make little difference. They say it helps with flicking the bike back and forth. So unless you are in the category of a street racer through the twisties it should not make a difference.
I'm not positive but I believe this is why the Driveguard has to be mounted in a certain way. I have been using the Yokohama Avid Envigor ZPS and I am very happy with it. I have not used the Driveguard so I can not comment on it. I just know you would mount it as if it was going on the left side of your car.
