Full Bore tires update
Written by rudyg1937 on 9/4/2011 at 08:23 pm


Full Bore is an old name that used to make oils and other products. I believe
it was European as the shops that sold Pentons and Huskys seemed to be the ones
that carried it. I imagine China bought the name as I notice it says engineered
in Japan but no mention of where they are made. Does it say on the sidewall?
Funniest thing is a friend found NOS whitewall tires for his 305 Dreams and I
was putting one on for him and noticed they were Goodyear, made in Japan. The
Made in Japan was printed on the bead area so when it was mounted you could not
see it. Yes I know the tires are old but he does not really "ride" his old
bikes and wants them as authentic as possible.

road well, and absolutely no "tracking" along the grooves in the freeway
pavement. As far as ride goes, I am hooked.

all have a lower cost alternative to Dunlop and Metzler.
