Can anyone elaborate on the effects off the directional thread??

-< = more forward bite?

>- = more side bite?

I am only getting 2 race days out of a set of these caliber tires in M2 compound. I love them so I keep buying them but they seem to wear faster than any other tire I have. Maybe I should try xtr compound, but its going to start getting cooler. Best tire I have run in awhile. very high side bite and nice linear forward bite.

I dont know about other people but I gave up on proline then got spoiled by AKA so its gonna be even tougher to win back my buisness & for me to drop spare cash that is getting harder to find these days, on tires that may have increased quality or may not.

Anybody that has got ahold of these tires feel free to respond.
I am absolutely spoiled on AKA premounts.

+1000000000 Some soft I-beams and some soft and hard Gridirons and I'm set.

Though I do love how my Proline Revolvers wear out in two races.
