Not one to post about stuff that's been discussed to death but... Performance has a really great deal on some Fire XC Pro "Special Edition" tires. I know about the Taiwan/Japan-60/120TPI-Labeling crap, but what I don't know is what the heck are these particular tires!!! I personally went to my local Performance to check 'em out. For all intents and purposes they look just like the Jap 120s accept for the "special color" (gray). Here's the kicker; They're heavier and the sidewalls feel "thinner"! One thing I noticed was the dominant thread pattern on the inside of the sidewall seemed more "spaced out" on these compared to a known Jap 120TPI. I couldn't tell much difference between tread compounds, seemed to be the same. Both are folding, Aramid bead, etc... Anybody got a clue?
