Calling all tire experts.
I'm going today to get a new stocker on my front. Having the shop do it. Mrs. Lockjaw is cool with me doing everything except tires. She may have a good point. At any rate. I've been running a gripster in the back and the stock in front and really like the combo. I'm thinking about changing the back while I'm at it (and just got my tax refund so not freaking about money)...it's got some good wear in the middle. Problem is, they said Gripsters are out of production. They were super busy and the parts guy wasn't there when I just called, so my question is, what are some other tires that are Gripster-like. That would run well with the stocker up front. I'm just looking for a list I can take in with me, so when they start naming tires I have something to go on.
And would there be value in changing the tubes? Bike has almost 9K miles on it.
