 This is a truly awesome tyre. You could just fro any thing at it, and it shouldn't burst... at least mine didn't. I bought this tyre in the first place because my old tyre was obviously skidded out. Then after words, this tyre was so strong and grippy, the tyre was passed on through bicycle generations... Wink saves rims...

 BULLETPROOF, hard as nails tyre, a bitch to put on but once they are one they roll smooth, pinch flats are no longer a problem as long as you run with good dh/fr tubes!!

Maxxis Ringworm (MSRP $24) — The Ringworm tread encircles both sidewalls from rim edge to rim edge to protect the tire casing from premature wear. This allows longer tire life for street and ramp riders that grind coping, rails, curbs, etc. The side tread also benefits high angle cornering and flatland maneuvers. The Ringworm excels on the street, parks, flats, and ramps. Rated high pressure at 110 PSI. As our HookWorm tire was being developed, a few of our 20-inch pros requested a tread pattern that covered the entire sidewall. Their old-school tires were wearing through the sidewalls too quickly when doing rails, thus shortening the life of the tire. The idea was to get more performance and longevity for freestyle riders who run pegs. The result is a directional tread that encompasses the entire tire from rim edge to rim edge. The additional tread on the sidewalls prevents premature wear, hooks on walls, rails, and coping 70a durometer 110 PSI.
