I didn't want to be untactful. I know people on the internet can be quite nitpicky and I didn't want to come across as doing that to you. hard to inflect with writing. LOL.

I have worked in the tire industry so I guess that's part of it too. It just took me a minute when I saw "thinner" and I thought maybe it might throw someone off. I mean, I knew what you meant, but I never assume, etc.

Peace.

thirties.

seriously Kaun, you are thinking way too much! Better go run a few miles, man.

Say, how long after running a marathon do you wait before running again?

It seems like your body would need a few days to heal.

This will mean that they tear up the roads less, unless you install studs, in which case they're fairly harsh. The roads tear up the tires pretty badly in the summer.
You can't install studs. Well I guess with a screw gun you could....hehe

Nope. You could be stopping normally on dry pavement and the ABS would see that as a upcoming lockup if it saw a rapid deceleration.

ABS senses the difference in speed between wheels, it doesn't "predict" what will happen, it reacts to what IS happening.
