Anyone ever run these tires? I ordered a set based on extremely high reccomendations on MTBR.com (4.89 rating-all star for 2007). I have also read some other reviews and people said they were terrible. I bought them as a comparison to the Panaracer Fire XC pro's I run now. I am having a real hard time getting used to the red bead on the Fire xc's. With my wheels, it shows more than you think. I know that sounds stupid, but I think most of us care (at least a little) what our bikes look like. I'm not saying that I'm swapping out the Fire xc's for good (they are BAD AZZ tires) I just want to try out the MotoRaptors to see if they perform as well- they look better to me. I'm trying not to care about the looks because the Fire xc's perform so well and if I can't find a better performing tire that is all black-I will definatley be leaving them on. I just think that a black wheel and black tire look good together. I wish Panaracer would make thier "all black" version of the Fire XC Pro actually ALL BLACK. I'm not a big fan of red anyway, and my bike is starting to have a lot more red on it than I had planned-it just seems to be happening that way. Anyway, any opinions on the MotoRaptor 2.14 race would be great. Thanks!
