Cheap! I will feel much better with the new tires vice the China Bombs.

I decided not get rid of my new factory Trail Express china bombs. I'm getting some standard white painted steel rims from Discount Tires and I'll have 4 extra spares for temporary emergency use only ...

I only had 2806 miles on my Windjammer with the Trail Express and the Tire Minder sensors were mounted on the standard rubber valve stems. In my picture you can see the gouges the sensors made in the aluminum rims do to the stems flexing under the centrifugal force while wheel was spinning. Won't be happening anymore...
