I've been offered a good deal on some Vitora tyres, works out $40 a tyre cheaper than the Maxxis tyres I currently have.

 

Anyone tried Vitora tyres? Thanks..

I couldn't figure that out. But didn't realise who made Neuton, good to know, thanks.

 

Discovered Kumho budget make is Zetum, but they were out of stock until the end of March, so just went with some Kumho.
