Also use to run the VE33 solely and really liked that tire. Switched to the M5B the last few tire changes but and thinking of going back to the VE33 for the wet rooty winter here in PNW. Also contemplating the Shinko Cheater. NEGbrap what size VE33 did you get? I ran the 110's on my old 250F's but am thinking of going to 5.10 and tubliss this time for the 250RR.. Let me know what you think of the tire and what tire pressure you land on with the tubliss and it.
