The 127tpi are made in Japan. They are readily identified by the large white lettering on both sides of the tires. The 60tpi are made in Taiwan and have the smaller red colored label I believe on one side of the tire.jgsatl said:so.....what is the difference in all these fire xc pros?? i got the 2 for $36 at price point.com....so i guess i got the 60tpi versions? i'm guessing they're thinner sidewalls or something?
I just ordered a couple from Speedgoat, where there's no shipping or tax if over $100. They price matched $24.99 from Wheelworld.com. I use a pair on my HT and these are for my FS.fatbottomedgurl said:Best price I can find on the 580gram 127 TPI Fire XC Pro is $27 at Jenson. Anyone know of a better deal?

I got the same ones from www.pricepoint.com fo $15 with small label on the side. rolling resistance is higher but they grip really well. Of course heavyat 680g. But so far I put 1000 miles on them and looks like they will last another 300 miles. So I would say they are very durable. Also they come in that nice yellow color to match my bikejgsatl said:ah...gotcha. i have the small label on the side of mine. and they do have a large amount of rolling resistance....but they also grab really, really well.
