    Who starts asking for help by saying they didn't want to look for it themselves?

    I love when people try to cover up idiocy by saying "I just like pissing people off." Happens every time.

    umm i have a gatorskin on the rear...

    i just put it on though but i heard they hold up well.

    people have told me to pick up an armadillo elite for the rear... so i'll give that one a try.


    both of these tires are actually way above your $15 mark however... sorry

    Yeah I love it too. Happens everytime doesn't it
    And to the other people, I've heard good things about Conti Gators so I'll give those a try if I can find one thats like 30$ which shouldn't be hard

    if you use armadillos for skidding you are an idiot, and love to waste money. and you cant go very fast.

    The stolen ones from the dumpster behind your LBS skid the best .Maximize patches and lean forward.

    what behavior are you referring to? skidding? or putting continental gatorskins on for skidding? or using armadillo's for skidding? be more specific...

    and to deep_puddle i haven't done any research on the armadillos... but for some reason people are recommending them for skidding... dunno i don't ride with a brake so people tend to throw advice at me... whether good or bad..

    but anyway the gatorskin rides juuuust fine.

    any other tire recommendations for skidding anyone?

    the original poster needs to learn how to spell and use "to", "too", and "two". then he needs to stfu with the attiutude on what we can't say.
