    nokias worked well !!!

    After the rain yesterday the puddles froze over along the sides of the road and many spots on the bike path. My mount and grounds worked well, no problems. A rider ahead of me was fish tailing and putting his foot down quite often, he had regular 'mtb' tires. I have to say though in deep slushy parts they were a little skidish.Glad I bought them.They do slow you down but at least you feel secure especially when you hit an icy patch as traffic is going by you.

    I just bought some Mount and Grounds, they're NOKIA tires. Maybe they're old stock or, maybe they didn't bother changing the name on the tire molds for the Mount and Grounds. The last N was added when the cell company separated from the tire company a few years ago.
    ...!

    You are correct sir. My tire from last year and the one I bought this year both say Nokia.
