NOS Tioga Psycho II Grey/Amberwall Tyres :)

Nice n fresh and unridden, but time has started to get the better of them and are showing small signs of age, having checked over these tyres there are fine cracks in the tread and in some places the sidewalls are drying or discoloured. :(

So I would say they'd be best for garage queens, 2 pairs are available and are £29.95 per pair posted to the UK :)

Mooster,

I need 2 tires and as you describe, I have placed on my mtb for many years but are very broken.

It would be possible, after you find out the shipping costs, which will send them to me to Buenos Aires, Argentina?

I'll pay you in advance by paypal or method you prefer.

Atte. Condor.

No problem!

The cracks in the tread are only exposed when the tyre is off the rim and squeezed and are mainly around the blocks in a few areas. In other areas of the tyres the cracks aren't there.

For the sidewalls, again there's a few dry patches, but not all the way round.

I've put some pictures below to show typically what the tyres are like.

I hope this helps :)

I've got a single nos one if anyone is interested. Not bought via this thread, vgc with no evidence of the drying/cracking above, but will confirm as not checked in a while.
