It just seems a bit strange running a tread pattern like that that isn't the same on both sides.It just seems like they should be used as a set to handle properly.Am I the only one that feels this way?

Yes I know that you would have trouble installing a set on a Wing that's not triked.:lol:

There are many tires out there like this, and there isn't any ill effects in the handling department.:thumbup:

I wonder if that would give more tread flex or squirm?
I had the very same thought and looked at the tread pattern. The Alpin pattern has some fairly significant blocks on the outside that contribute to the 'hard-charging squirm', especially before the edges are worn down some. This tire looks considerably less blocky on the outside, with some roundness. The 12/32" tread depth has to be of some value in the rain, especially in the middle of the tread, but IMHO I don't see it as a liability based on the pictures. I would like to get a live look at one.
