Default ING Tires

has anyone had experience with this tire? I guess this will be the spec tires for the FEMCA 2005 Thailand race. How does it compare to the Sorex? Price, traction, and wear rate?

CE!

Ing tires have a very thick carcus and wear slowly like Take Off tires. With the thick carcus they take a bit longer to heat-up, forward bite is less than sorex but about the same as Take Off. Side bite on their older profile tire was poor but the new ones look a better.

Centax to get the tire here in the US contact eddie at Team Br00d for supply on the tire. He recently took over distribution of the tire here int heUS market.

The old carcass and construction the Mark is talking about used a larger rim and a very square shoulder. The new tire, rim and insert are different with the rim being a more common size. The new tire does not like as much airgap as the old construction.

They are good solid tires when you choose the right insert. I've had good experiences with them on asphalt as well as carpet. They wear awesome too!!!
