    Neither of which happened to me when installing the same hitch on the same car, nor trailering two bikes on a HF trailer for thousands of miles with the same car.

    I'll stick with bridgestones for now When the time comes and I want to pay too much for tires, I know what brand to buy
    So if you want to be different, why don't you just ride Michelins. As most people at least I have seen ride those or Pirellis.

    I did for years and was extremely happy.

    I don't want to be different. I'm just not paying that kind of money for track tires. I get that Kurtz slings them and that's why people here flock to them. Easy to get and they're supporting a friend. They're just too much damn money and a bridgestone is just as good a tire. They've never let me down and I like the stiffer sidewall construction they have. Plus, their motogp tech is finally starting to trickle down to their consumer offerings and that experience can only mean good things for the company

    Typically we buy from MTAG because they are at the track where we ride. By the time you buy a set of Rains from Miles ($365) and have them shipped and mounted I don't think you will be more than a nickle cheaper than what you can get the Pirelli tires from MTAG. Unless you happen to be riding at a track that he is at which is generally only NHMS. Then you can save a few bucks....

    Often times a smaller tire profile flattens the tire to give you more contact on to the surface. Often needed when wet.

    I've stepped down from a 160 to a 150. I've seen some 600 step down to a 160 size rear tire.

    But obviously consult your tire company for appropriate fitment.😉
