Ultimate dual sport tire.. Mission Impossible II

Recommended Posts

I saw the ultimate dual sport tire tonight on the movie "Mission Impossible II". The bad guy was chasing Tom Cruise and they are both on sport bikes with street tires (Ducati's I think). Then they go in the dirt and the tires transform into knobbies. They even show closeups of the knobbies spinning and skidding in the dirt. If anybody has one of these tires for sale or knows where I can get one let me know.

yep they are great, they self-repair flats, never get dull or dirty, grip like glue in the winter! and even come with a set of company stickers

Actually the bikes were Triumphs, one speed triple and the other was a 955i, just thought you should know...

They were Triumphs!? How did they keep them running for so long? Must be the magic of Hollywood. :)

AlexK,

LOL!! Had the same thoughts throughout that scene. Pretty decent chase scene if it weren't so blatantly unbelievable. Tom Cruise I think was on a Triumph Speed Triple, and the bad ass guy was riding their TT600 shshshporty fast bike I believe (correct me if I'm wrong).

Those tires are available through Victorinox - Swissarmy (presto-changos -- they also have paddles for water duty ;^)
