    FAtback/ Speedway Tires?

    A little bird just told me about some new tires coming out this year under the Fatback name, with a size slated between 4.0 and 4.8...
    I predict a faster rolling, high flotation option, with less aggressive tread than Bud/Lou.

    Will be nice to have another option, adding to the Specialized and Bontrager releases this year as well.

    I should neg rep you for being a tease, but I am a good mood from a 30 mile road ride, so I will let this slide.

    Me too. The pile of tires in my basement is impressive. There are at least a dozen different models in a variety of sizes adding up to about 30 pieces. For me it's because the tire can make or break the ride so I have a collection. When I travel I bring a box of tires so I can change out depending on what's needed for the the day.

    One would guess maybe they would be, seeing that they are Vee Rubber made.

    That's what I'm hoping, but a wider casing, custom tread, and sole distributor (guessing) might add a slight premium.

    Brilliant but fat tires are a game of mm looking for a true answer. It makes a big difference in future purchases.
