    Ok well I ordered these today and my LBS will call me whenever they come in. They're the Kenda Kolossal DH tires. And guess what? Only $5.00! That was their closeout price!!!! I will have pics as soon as they come in, which could be awhile.
    BTW, I ordered them in 2.6 not 2.3

    They are $5.00 for a reason. You can try them, but I'm pretty sure you won't like them.

    It's a closeout price...usually they're $50-60. Even if they are crap they still were $5.00.

    The Kollassals are miserable in the grip department.

    eh, I bought a bmx for $30 and they all told me over there it is a piece, well I sure had fun on a $30 tonight, so whatever. I still think I got a deal and I think you did too. I mean for $5 hell if they suck make hula-hoops out of them or something. I don't think they would work well for a swing though.

    Ya I really don't care...c'mon $5.00 for two tires! Some of you are missing the $5.00 part..besides im going beat the hell out of them if they are crap, trailwise that is.

    P.S. I have a habit of destroying tires anyways, so what makes you think that $40 ones are going to last much longer?
