I like 'em. Front needs to be flipped fairly early, otherwise they have been great.

Avon Gripster

Thinking about Avon gripster, looks like they are out of T63 anyway.

The Gripsters are great tires if your mostly on the slab (like me!). They are ok on gravel and hard pack, but kinda scary in anything soft or muddy, even wet grass can dump you on them pretty quickly. They last a long time on pavement as well, lots of people report getting about 10,000 miles out of them.

The T63's are always going out of stock. It's a popular tire. Sometimes you just have to wait a bit.
