I've got 12,000 miles on my third MPA tire. All three have been mounted in reverse. The current tire seems to be vibrating thru the handlebars much more than the other two did. I'm wondering if the vibration exists with the MPA mounted in the mfg suggested rotation direction? This one is also cupping more than the other two. (I maintain 41lbs in it) Appreciate your input.

Out of Balance ! put some dina beads in it that may smooth it out.

George, found some dyna beads locally and installed them and took it for a ride yesterday. It certainly helped reduce the problem. But I would still like some feedback from the board on mounting an MPA in forward rotation, does it eliminate the "humming or vibration" that you get with reverse rotation?

And George, thanks again for the dyna beads suggestion.
