New Rear Tires

I couldn't take the Kumho tires that Hannigan puts on their trikes anymoe. so I finally broke down and bought a new set for my trike.  After doing a lot of looking at different tires, I decided to go with the General Altimax RT43 Touring tire.  So far, in only 1 short ride I can feel a huge difference with these tires.  Even though they are 700 tread wear and 65,000 mile tire, they grip!  Better than the Kumho's did.


Here's whats posted on Tire Racks site from General:


AltiMAX RT43 tires feature a Twin Cushion Silica Tread Compound that places a high-density all-season top compound for year-round traction and long wear above a low-density foundation compound that absorbs road vibrations to promote a comfortable ride. The tread compound is molded into a symmetric tread design featuring a continuous center rib and independent tread blocks that use sound wave suppression technology to reduce road noise for a quiet ride. Circumferential grooves and General's Anti-Slip Sipe Design Technology increases the number of biting edges to enhance traction on slippery roads.

The tire's internal structure features a Low Surface Abrasion Technology construction that reduces tread distortion as the tire rolls, resulting in less surface abrasion to promote even tread-wear and extend tread-life. Twin steel belts reinforced by two layers of spirally wrapped polyamide stabilize the tread area for good handling while a polyester cord body enhances ride quality.
