Its crazy to me how that is the inside tire doing that. It must really be squatting out of that corner/bump. I had the same rates all year until I just went stiffer. Mine would never squat like that....

There's some great deals on last season's rivals right now. And they're considered to be a good HPDE tire that doesn't get too incredibly greasy.
