Re: new tires
I wonder why they said the TAs wouldn't work then, unless they make next to nothing on them.
They know which tires have the highest margin, and maybe they push you towards them.
I like the AT2 Michelins for the same reason, aggressive tread pattern, solid sidewalls, and
they are very quiet for an (almost) off road tire. I have driven mine in snow, and they perform
very well, stability and grip seems very good.
It's not a sprint(er) (unless you make it one), it's (hopefully) a marathon.
