Those prices listed are for one pair.
They are pre-glued and trued on the rims.

You can also look under the nitro TC section for pairs with shore ratings.

Is that scale comparable to TRCís and why the big spread on the Whites? I use White rears sometimes but donít want to have a 22 once and a 27 the next time.

i noticed that spread,

those are all very similar

hyper,

Those compounds might have overlapping shore ratings, but because they have different amounts and different kinds of rubber in the foam, they wear and grip differently, too.

that is whet the manufacturer's suggested shore ratings are, I can tell you from experience the whites are all about 24-26....

As for overlapping shore ratings, there is a dirrefence between normal, exotic, natural, and gas foams...

i guess these compounds use different amounts of the different types of foam. for examaple, maybe a white is exotic foam while pink is a natural foam? all this sure makes tire selection difficult.
