    I called my local Nokian shop and they stated they could order the winter tire. Also, we have members in other countries where the full range of Nokian tires or tyres are available.

    I plan to switch my tyres from Bridgestone Potenza's to Yokohamas when they wear out... I've always rode on Yoki's, they're a damn good tyre... The Bridgestones are great, they're an expensive tyre though, and because I'm getting rims and rubber when they wear out, its going to be expensive enough as it is....

    We pay so much more for tyres here, its heartbreaking....

    Just for records both RT43 and BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S available at Walmart, $64 and $79 respectively, and mounting in Wallimart is cheap.

    The Michelin Defender uses "Green X" technology, which is supposed to be LRR. Half a size up, though. How much of "Green X" is technology vs how much is marketing is anyone's guess...

    If I understand correctly, a wider tire improves cornering at the expense of fuel economy. What has been member's experience on fuel economy with wider tires?
