The Thumpertalk store!!!

Or M&H Tires if for some odd reason TT can't come through. Get the AMERICAN ONES!!

Those are the crappy ones (non U.S.) on my bike. But brand new.

I just received my terraflex in the mail from M&H. Does M&H have the american ones? And what's the difference?

The TeraFlex type I 140/80-18 was the well made american tire. The new 150/80-18 size is made by Cheng Shin and is a terrible compound that wont last mch more than on or 2 hard rides! The old compound was soft but durable! :banghead: I dont think the US models are available anymore. they used to cost $92.00 for a rar and now they are about $68.00 for the new crap! :banghead:

Wrong. You are mis-informed. I have 2000 miles on my Chinese made TFII made by Interco NOT Cheng Shin, and it's still going strong. Pictures coming.

Is that 2000 miles offroad? I just put my TFII on my bike today and I am worried about how many miles I will be able to ride it on road.

He's right, I have the inferior Interco and it's got AT LEAST 1500 dirt and street miles on it with virtually no wear. Some wear of course, but I'm fairly certain it will at least pull another 1500 before I need the american version.

About 500 miles off road, really rocky terrain too. I figured it would chunk alot like my Michelin S12, but nope... no chunking just that wierd "cut" I documented on another thread. If you haven't seen it, search this forum for teraflex "cut".

Ok here are the pics I took.

Current TFII with over 2000 miles. I put my new TFII next to it for perspective.

I added a U.S. Quarter for more perpective.

Measureing tape on outside lugs of 2000 mile TFII, you can see not much wear here.

You can see from the 1st pic w/the tape that the wear after 2000 miles is about 1/2 inch, not bad for such an agressive knob pattern. Still hooked up well for me this past weekend.
