    even if front is less than 2400 lbs, whenever you corner, even if not hard, you put a greater load on the outside tires.
    I'd take tires that aren't meant to be on a bicycle.

    using the VW radial tires has been done by many for years. on race cars, not just the beetle. most that have the skinnies on front know better than to take cormers at 80 mph. there's always that one guy though....
