so some might remember a couple months ago i was looking to replace a rear tire with a little "upgrade". i couldnt justify spending big money on a mismatched set and didnt feel like replacing a front that was barley 2000mi old. so i went with a duro hf918 sport from americanmototire.com. shipped and everything it was under 75 and that was with faster shipping.
i must admit i was a bit skeptical but not anymore. i have been pushing my bike more and more and these tires have loads of grip unlike most reviews ive heard from the "shins". even comming home in the rain tonight i had nothing but extreme confidence. these feel LOADS better than the stock bridgestones. when i pushed the bike it felt like it was going to lose grip at any second. i can really rail with the new duro. even tho its advertised as a "long wear" tire its alot stickier than the stocker.
sure, there are better tires out there, but if your on a budget and need a quick fix but still want to have fun..i reccomend the duro. and it even looks like a more expensive tire
