    Why don't you guys call Avon and ask about custom run for your tires? They may say 100 or 5000 tires, but then you would at least know...

    Well, I suppose that is a bummer then, 90% of the tires are rotten before 100 (50) guys can use them... if someone can come up with that kind of money.

    That will totally kill the value of the bikes those are not the easiest bikes to modify for a different tire size...

    I imagine the 100k run is the smallest since they probably have to change tooling on the machines and shit. Not to mention the down time that creates for Avon.

    Even if folks are willing to spend $500-600 on a tire that is still a minimum order of 200+ tires.

    Not to mention where the hell do you store them?

    Now I don't condone this but is there an applicable car tire to go dark side? For anyone that might not be familiar with dark siding. .

    I once looked at the conversions, there wasn't any obvious and easy options. If I remember correctly.

    So now you all can forget the group buy from them...
    China might be one option, but would I put Chinese custom size tires on my bike? Hell no! Those might last 150.000 miles though.

    I just called Matt, and he was interested in an approach in which he would not get stuck with the entire investment lug for a run of tires. He liked the idea of in essence 'pre-selling' a bunch of them.
    He will go back to his emails and records and see what is needed to get Avon to tool up and do it, and go from there.
    Apparently Avon destroyed the molds for those tires, so they will have to re-make more to do a run of tires.
    Matt said he would get some numbers together and post them on the Forum.

    Can't blame him..getting stuck with 100 tires sucks he has to pay to store them.. I bet he still sitting on 100 pitbull tires in a container in the parking lot.

    Probably 700-800 mastiffs that year alone and same amout of pitbulls. Lots of bikes. There was 20,000 built and most were built from 04-08

    Check your vin the last 4 digits is your make and model # so you know they at least built that many. My 04 is like #630 or something
