I had some on my series motor years ago. From what i remember they were cheap and lasted forever... mainly because the compound they used was so hard the road would wear out quicker than the tyre.

The downside of that was that they were completely lethal if the road wasn't hot enough for the asphalt to melt and give you grip, if it rained it was safest to park up somewhere and wait for the road to dry out :)

Am currently using Kingpin Highlander remoulds.....7.50/16......seen a few other club members using the same. They are the same as the diamonds pattern. Found them having slightly less grip in the mud compared to the Simex's pattern, but more grip on rocky surface , as well as more grip on tarmac. Will be testing them when it snows :D

I had the tread come off one on the motorway once and trash a front wing (still inflated and running on carcass but the whole tread peeled off) so won't touch them , and no I wasn't exceeding their speed rating before you ask, monarch on the other hand were fine.
