    name that tire!

    hey y'all,

    i've been in the market for some decent vintage style street tires and found this rear on a japanese custom that looks friggin' sweet. but for the life of me i can't figure out what it is....i tried to blow up the image and read it, but it looks like it reads "shit fester"...do you think it's some japanese-only tire brand called the shit fester? anyway, check it out:

    how about the original site or link....maybe some of us here speak japanese....

    I wouldn't put it past the japanese to make a custom tire or at least a custom sidewall for an existing tire.

    It's Bridgestone, dude!

    You can read the "stone"

    Also the number auf letters fits.


    PS: Had a really good laugh on "shit fester", you made my day[]

    //edit:

    Look, i've found a pic by searching for "Bridgestone classic tire", I think the third one is the tire you're looking for.

    i'd rather be poked in the eye with a sharp stick than to have to suffer those on a bike i planned on riding

    the back tread design is bad enough but

    ribbed tires completely suck
