Time to invest in a few for the long run, or major punctures -- as I had at 90MPH when I hit a bolt on the freeway near LAX and blew out the left rear. I can't find a replacement for my SP9000 Dunlop anywhere.

Bob, would you mind describing the rear 90mph blowout experience? Just curious what one could expect if ever...

Thanks - bummer to hear. Mine's got Fusion ZR-i's on it in OE size FWIW. Bridgestone owns them I guess. Cheap, decent. Good luck.
