To put it shortly, it's the worst tire I've ever used. It absolutely sucks. What? You want some details? Okay, I guess. Note: this is for a 150/90-15 rear tire. Dry traction: Mediocre at best. My Max with the Venture drive can keep it lit up through most of third gear before it finally hooks up. Going WOT in first or second results in an instant burnout. Cornering is disconcerting and not exactly confidence-inspiring. For "general" riding, it's adequate, but when really pushed into corners it doesn't want to hold a line, and the slightest bump in the road induces a mild wobble. For easy riding it might be passable, but there's really no such thing on a Vmax, is there? Wet traction: Absymal. If you get a picture of the Venom's tread, you'll see that over 90% of the tire there is NO center tread. At all. Most of the tire is half-chevrons on either side of a slick center, then there is a couple of wavy treads that cross the tire at about at 45 degree angle. It's the only non-symmetrical tire I've ever seen. Since there is no tread in the center to evacuate water, riding in the rain gets downright scary. It spins with anything but the most ginger touch on the throttle. What really killed this tire for me is wet cornering. Even when I'm in "rain mode" and riding more conservatively through corners, the rear tire walks all over the place. I've ridden knobby tire dirt bikes that took corners better. I have to slow waaaaaay down, often to 15 or 20mph to take the corner. It's really that bad. Wear: Good. I suppose one redeeming factor for this tire is that it seems to wear extremely well. I've got over 3000 miles on it, with lots and lots of burnouts and hard acceleration and it still looks new. Suppose that comes with whatever ultra-hard compound it's made of. However, it's not even a year old and already dry-rotting on the sidewalls. What a piece of shit. I'd say this tire may be passable for a low horsepower cruiser, but the absolutely frightening wet traction breaks the deal. A burnout vid may be coming soon, smoke this thing and go get a new one.
