maxxis tires silkworm vs silkshield
« on: August 19, 2018, 03:02:53 PM »
the silk worm tires are about an oz lighter than the silkshield tires. they say the silk shield tires have more puncture protection on the sidewalls. does this equate to grind protection on the sidewallk? is the one oz of liner on the inside or outside of the tire?

anyone have experience with these silkshield/silkworm tires?

maxxis website says these tires are good for light street. i assume that includes the occasional rough feeble. i want a 1.95 torch on the rear. anyone have experience grinding on this ultra light tire?
