Fit TA Tire First Impression BACK ONLY

Greased my coaster and threw on my TA tire as well , waiting for my front wheel to arrive so jjust the back went on.

First impression :

I've had them sitting around for a bit without them being put on. Out of the box I remember them looking ALOT better in gum then what you see in videos. Yes , I forgot , I got them in gum/black sidewalls. I feel that would look good for grinds without the gum sidewalls going black , not that I grind though. They felt really light and the FIT tread cutouts really added alot of "sick" factor to me , nice touch. 110 PSI is great but I run maybe 85 PSI max so hard but not crazy.

Riding wise , they got "dirty" decently fast ; like dust , sand , gravel , that shit got caked on right away. It made the center tread look pale. And. My fucking god they were squeeking like a dying mouse getting thrown into an engine. Fuck you ride down a bank (Not airing it but like sliding down it without actually sliding) they chirped and with 180's they squeeked and chirped most times. It felt great. They seem really grippy but I was running bald tires before so not sure of how grippy persay to normal tires. I was bombing hills and ran over glasses from a broken window and I don't have a flat so that's good.

Only bad thing I'd say from riding it today only is that black marks stay on it . Like grease from my coaster stained the sidewalls and I like tire slided a curb and theirs burn marks all over the side of the tires but nothing major , just don't expect them to look mint at all , especially if you don't have black sidewalls!

I'd get another pair , red marble looks sick as fuck.

Nice write up, Brayden. I think anyone going into a purchase of lightly colored tires should expect them to look dirtier than black tires. Although black tires can look just as dirty.

I know this is a bit later than the OP was posted. I was wondering how they are holding up overall, like how long did they take to "break in"? I ordered a set for myself, should be here tomorrow.

most of the slick tires have a waxy sort of coating likely a mold release agent from the manufacturing process that makes it slippery until it wears off, so yes

Where I am living I've never seen someone with anything else bit black fit F.A.F tires. But mostly the reason I got them was the gum is tackerier, which I want.
