Wow, over 300 bucks for a pair! But, you know, if they actually grip in the ice, that's not bad.
They just aren't in the tire budget, I already have 3 pairs of tires for the ruck. The safety gear budget how ever I might be able to wrap my mind around that. I was thinking about just ordering a front and using koldcutter ice screws in the rear innova but no I want front and back: all though I would probably get two 130's.

Well, I finally decided to splurge on some new tires after comparing my back tire to my brothers (mine's pretty much bald in the middle). I went for the Pirelli SL60s. Cost a pretty penny, but hopefully I'll like them. I'll give some more info when I get them, and put 'em on.

Just replaced my stock original tires that were getting bad. Found a small finishing nail in the rear tire. Explains the slow leak I had.
Replaced them with the Michelin Reggae's that I got from Motorcycle Superstore.com. Paid 29.99 for the front and 32.99 for the back. Also ordered a set of tire irons and the shipping was free. Got them in two days!!
All went well on the tire change thanks to the threads explaining the process. Took me about an 1 1/2 hours to take the old off and replace with new. Back tire is a little thinner than the stock.
Took them out for a test this afternoon. Handle very well on dry pavement and corner better. Much better than stock tires on snow. No speed loss or gain.
