Ummm, it's a tricky one. Kissling rain tires are excellent. Mark can give you more info on that. I think there are some other rubber tires as well that you could use.

But if you want to try your existing foam tires, you could try cutting slots in them with the tire truer just like what you find on the Kissling tires. Works great apparently. I have not tried it.

thanks for the info i dont think anyone would sell the kissling tyres over here but the slot idea might work. would you use soft or hard tyres and how many slots do you think you woud run?

3 or 4 parallel slots running along the same lines as the rim, maybe?

I would go with the softest tires you can find.

Hey,
Better, buy a set of BRB piston and Sleeve
Faster and more reliable.

That sure is pretty. I hope it still looks good after a week in Ft. Meyers. Mine looked pretty bad after 2 days I think I took most of the grey paint they used on the boards home with me.

Better pack your long-johns... it was in the 30's this morning
I hope it warms up.

If that's 30F then I'll feel right at home - if it is 30C, then I'm going to melt

I've got three of these shells made up and I'm bringing an old basher to do practice with - hopefully at least one shell will survive for me to take home

Here are Kisslings web:
www.kiss-tyres.ch

You can also buy them at Serpent Austria. Web: www.serpent.at
look under Action parts.

If you have problems with german, then I think mark27 can help you.
