Re-issues of Porcs and classic Panaracers are an awesome idea, so probably won't happen...


Actually Panaracer did just that a little while ago. Unfortunately most of us missed it completely and they were all sold by the time we noticed.


:D

My local store pestered the oz distributor to get in some smoke/darts, so a grabbed a pair of smokes (only wire bead) but still a brilliant tyre...

But the smoke/dart is still up on the panaracer site, so it may be still possible to order them?

These new skinwall tyres look odd to me....

Is the skinwall part too large than we are used to, or is it because they are that much wider (2.25" as oppossed to 1.95") :?

I think it's the general profile of tyres these days; they seem to be a bit more bulbous than older ones. The logos certainly don't help.

Dear Mr Onza, please bring back the Rip and Rail 8)

The only tyres that seemed to work on wet clay and chalk.
