Default New K Factory tires

Have any of you tried the K Factory tires? They look cool and come in a sealed bag..

I just ordered a few sets for next weekend in Houston.. I guess I will see for myself soon. Just curious if anyone has tried them...

Just tried these tires today and I notice that the 40 shore K-Factory tires have more grip than Jaco 40s. I like these alot, especially for the price.

its funny how manufacturers always say "better wear than X brand" or "20% less wear"

i'd like to know what they are using as a baseline comparison for these figures. seems like every manufacturers tyres are X% better wear than the competition.

guys, it's just another foam tyre brand, lol. unless they have figured out a new recipe for a high denisty, high side bite/forward bite foam, it's the same as the rest.

there is only 3 types of foam currently for tyres;

-japanese foam (high rubber content) kawahara, ATS, Active, speedmind etc
-american foam (traditional foam low rubber content, suited better fro carpet)Jaco
-european foam (a moist dense foam which tends to be heavier than the other two types) ie gandinni

the K factory foam is most prob Euro or Jap.

So? What's your point? Our point, which you may have missed is that these tires ourperform others we have tried thus far (I have always used jaco) at a much better pricepoint. I also like the rim design alot. No offense, but these are great tires, if every tire was the same we'd never make a thread related to tires.

Also you quoted a reply to my comment about needing a tire truer. What did your post have to do with that? Don't you normally have a reply to the passage of test you quoted?
