Nice tires but as the wheel goes I'd just sand the clear off and re-clear them IMO. I have the same problem up here :(

I definitely want to hear a review of the tires. How loud are they? How is the ride compared to the old set?

They Aren't too Terribly Loud, and they work great in mud. 2wd got me through something I got stuck in 4x4 last time, so I'm pleased. Sorry it took so long to reply. Haven't had ANY problems with them so far. 10/10 so far.
