I was scoping out possible DarkSide tires when I saw this Pirelli Winter Snowcontrol. It has a nice symmetric tread, silica and a rounded profile. They call it a Winter Perforpmance tire. I especially like it that the those giant rain groves go ALL THE WAY to the edge.

Anyone know anything about it?

Here is another shot. (The yellow is part of a web graphic and is not on the tire.)

Funny that you should ask. I had a similar question a few days go. The bead is as hard as woodpecker lips. I have 600 miles on it. I don't care for it a lot yet I have 36 lbs in it to make it handle good. but it is smooth. I will post more later
