I'm curious and will remain so. Apparently, the one business in Canada that had a line on these tires no longer knows if they'll ship to Canada this summer. Hmmm. Bummer they look like a really great tire and I've tried the Heidenaus, Mefo Explorer (basically the same), so the only other 50/50 or 60/40 tire that I might try next is the Metzeler Karoo 3.

Their next closest tire is the Avon Trailrider which also looks promising and gets excellent reviews. I was just hoping for more of a compromise leaning towards gravel/fire road and offroad. Not a full dirt tire and not a 90/10 tires like the Trailrider.

I am going to put on the Shinko 804/805 tires this summer instead.

If anyone gets to try these out I'd be curious.
