Maybe I've been under a rock but I had no idea that a 2.8 tire existed. I used to ride 2.7's but am currently on 2.5's. I'd be interested in hearing how they perform.

I bought it from a friend who has several Michelin dh tires - $40 bucks!

Best thing I have heard all day :D

Yeah 2.8 is a monster and a soft compound to boot!
If Diablo will open back up I'll give a ride report :madman:

I tried shipping 4 tires and it was over 100 bucks
Best ft tire I've ever ridden for dh/free ride, been ridin'em for about 6-7 yrz. Now they're a 2.6 rather than a 2.8, however with that said they have alwayz been a wee bit smaller than the published 2.8 size, but the sticky compound & tread have served me well & have saved me arse on a weekly basis.

Hey SMT, no worries on the tirez and shippin stuff, I already have a new one on th ft of my VP Free, got it as soon as my LBS could get it, so it'z all good Holmes.
